Pig Wall Plaque

So, after I had carved the owl for my friend, she was so pleased she wanted me to design and carve a pig as a present (© Hatch, Burn, Carve/Martin Wilson).

If you would like me to design and carve an animal for you (or you can supply your own design), then please message me here, or email




The Long Man

After carving the Uffington horse for a stable sign for my sister’s horse, I wanted to do more in the way of chalk hill figures.

I was given this very large (and consequently heavy!) Cornish roof slate, so it was the ideal media to carve a representation of the Long Man of Wilmington.

This is still for sale/ 60cm x 40 cm. Send me a message here, visit my Folksy Shop or email

Here’s the slate after carving and the beginning of the slow job of hand-enamelling;


Feet done;



Hours of careful enamelling, and the Long Man is finished;
