Chainsaws & Rainbows

December 5, 2018

I love rainbows. But I also love chainsaws. “It’s all chainsaws and rainbows” is an expression that means life is good, filled with things that give a hard edge to happiness.


Recently I got my hands on a little STIHL chainsaw and have been putting my hand to a bit of sculpting…


It started with a few figures for a community sculpture park here in Swellendam: wise men, skinny forms and strange figures, almost like forest sprites or Japanese kodama, kinda like in Princess Mononoke…


From there, I made my boy Zac the Hungarian Visla, got a commission for a bat-eared fox and a couple of French bulldogs. I am currently trying to get to grips with a pair of owls…

It’s all chainsaws and rainbows.
