About this project

Commissioned by a private client to produce a Green Man in Oak for their garden, as big as possible, which presented a few technical challenges.

The solution was to find the biggest Oak trunk we could in the country, blown down in a gale at six foot in diameter. We split this into half vertically one for front and the other we split into quarters for the two sides, making a U shape on plan.

Hand made brick Sun God mosaic and garden layout plan assistance as well.
