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.
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.
None yet but 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
