Jes McSparron – wood carver

Jes, as a Tree Surgeon, uses his carving skills to explore sculptural possibilities, texture, and form from a varied encounter with both native and non-­native tree species.

Often this culminates in a resolved piece of artwork but often the organic nature of the material dictates the outcome.

The raw marks of the blade are sometimes left visible to contrast with the imperfections of the wood, which contributes to the overall aesthetics of the final piece.
