For the first time Art of Oak was commissioned by brilliant parents to carve their children’s drawings for their bespoke beech bunkbed. The children had painted different images of their ‘Ship of Dreams’ which I was left free to interpret, and design their carvings and images. It has been a great success with the two boys having wonderful sleep instead of restless nights. The Ship of Dreams is very much as painted initially. The painted carvings have highlights of inset seaglass…..see the eyes of the Octopus, and top of masts.
Art of Oak has a special talent for taking children’s drawings and carving them into oak framework and timber furniture,as it has been doing with schools and early years centres since 1992. It was an inspired choice of the parents who approached me in the first place, and their bunkbed is well celebrated. Art of Oak welcomes any enquiries of a similar nature.
