3D Wood – Nick Speakman

What a year!

As the work of 3dwood spreads throughout the south of England with public & private commissions in Essex, Berkshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Somerset and pieces being sent to Scotland and shipped abroad to Gibraltar, we continue to go from strength to strength.

This year has seen a new website constructed by a gem of a find, Lyndsay Moon, who worked with us remotely to understand our vision and needs then produced a fresh look for us and we thank her for all her efforts and guidance.

As well as lots of small commissions that allow me to develop as a sculptor I am enjoying the development and process of taking on bigger projects. I got a call back in February from the head grounds man at South Hill Park in Bracknell, Berkshire. I was invited to put forward a proposal to restore two large wooden sculptures that where carved in the 1980`s and were in need of restoration. Our proposal was accepted over other national companies and work got underway in May this year. Unfortunately they were both beyond repair and I then took on the new challenge of completely renewing both pieces. I collaborated on this project with Diccon Dadey of Dadey Metal Art on this project. The sculptures were installed on time and on budget.

You can view the two sculptures here: Gravity XII and Totem, Angel
