Thompson Dagnall

Thompson Dagnall carves wonderfully in wood and stone, usually on a big scale. He showed us pictures of some of his public art commissions. Just put Thomson Dagnall into a search engine and be prepared to be amazed.

This carving is typical of Thompson’s figure work, so life like and with so much vigour and movement.

Green timber solution

As Thompson uses green timber there is a high possibility of it splitting. Here he is showing us his solution to the problem; lots of holes bored into the base. If one bid hole had been made it was likely that there would not be enough strength in the wood to resist the power of the shrinkage.

Hair feather and fluffiness

Here Thompson is demonstrating his way of giving hair, feather, leaves fluffiness. The technique involves digging an extra deep hole to give extra darkness
