Hitting Things With Mallets

Hello -
My name is Sophie Walker and this is my blog about my wood-carving work. I'm going to try and upload photos of works in progress, as well as finished pieces and a little bit of what I find inspirational.

Salt on the wind… feeling settled being far from home.

I posted my entries a couple of weeks back for a Pretty Litter Mag competition called ‘Wish You Were Here’. Well, it turns out that I was one of three winners for the international competition! I am totally surprised when I look at some of the awesome entries from other participants. So yeah, I’m in the current issue and you know, you can wait ages for a bit of encouragement.. That the things you draw have been worth your time. Years of time.
It’s good.

My friend is very clever and lovely and talented. Why don’t you have a look at some of Suzie’s stuff…
