July 2008 - Christening & Wedding Commissions

Christenings and weddings are occasions that take place any time of the year, the latter particularly so during the summer months. Recent commissions have included gifts for both.


Formula One Car StoolThe three legged beech stools depicted in the Births & Christenings gallery are extremely popular as unique personalised gifts for young children. Susan recently completed work on one commissioned as a christening present for a little boy born towards the end of last year.

Several photographs were used as a reference point to work up a simplified version of a 'modern style' grand prix car for the required design.




Heart Shaped Wedding FavoursWedding favours in the form of wooden hearts pyrographed with the names of 118 guests was another commission undertaken by Susan this month. These may simply have the christian name of the guest as shown or can include an embellishment such as a small flower or scroll.

Ursula of Twickenham says "The hearts look wonderful! Thanks so much for all your work. They are the finishing touch that will make our 'vintage country garden' themed wedding look lovely ....... you did a beautiful job."
