About "Elephant Platter"

I turned the image area off centre and wire brushed the "frame" to compliment the skin of an elephant then burnt the image of a young female gazing steadily at the viewer. She is wary but expects respect. The deep shadow behind her hides her bulk but there is a hint of storm in the clouds above.

About Roy

Roy Gibbs

Originally from Ipswich in the UK, I emigrated in 1979, working for a British company, and remained here in this beautiful, exciting country ever since. I live on the edge of the Moot valley with a vista of the Magaliesberg mountains and a garden full of birds. Karee, Hookthorn and Pink Ivory trees grow around the house, Stamvrug and Milkwood on the hillslopes behind us.
I have been woodturning for 25 years and in the last few years I have been incorporating pyrography into my work to the extent that my turning is becoming incorporated into my pyrography. It delights me that I can combine my love of wildlife with working with wood and that I can see so many avenues to explore in the future. Finding ways to combine these 2 skills into desirable art work is a very fulfilling occupation. I hope you enjoy what you see and I welcome any comments, complimentary or not.

I participated at 'Botanical' an exhibition held at Kim Sacks Gallery, Rosebank, Johannesburg, December / January 2021 and at the 2019 symposium of the Association of South African Woodturners my work was placed in both decorative and woodturning categories.


I am a metallurgist and self taught artist
