    Netsuke collecting and carving
  1. I started collecting Japanese netsuke in 1976 after seeing an exhibition of them at the British Museum in London.Several years later I was inspired to start carving them myself after attending a workshop in the far north of Scotland where I then lived led by the brilliant Sue Wraight. I greatly admire Janel Jacobson's carving skills as well as those of Clive Hallam and Natasha Popova. I work mainly in wood but have experimented in shetland sheep horn ( I used to keep a flock of rare breed sheep).I still have a lot to learn to develop my carving and finishing skills. Anyway I show a couple of my modest efforts below - Firstly 2 views of a frog - Secondly, a spider on 2 bean pods -
