John Butler: The Wood Carver ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

A short film following the work of wood carver John Butler. John uses lime wood a traditional carvers wood and focusses his work on the odd little moments of life. This results in humorous works of art that feel alive.

A film for woodlands.co.uk by Emily George and Rose Dunster

It’s funny, because woodland owners I’ve spoken to who have Lime trees consider there is no market for the wood. It is regarded as worthless, and just left to rot.

I ask if they’ve heard of Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721). Most of his most famous pieces were carved from Lime. His work is regarded as the pinnacle of carving genius.

If carvers and landlords could only get together, there could be a valuable synergy.
