Guy Breay Bio Image
Guy Breay
From Guy Breay’s sustainably managed forest at his property, The Stiks, he selects salvaged timber for carving. He is attracted to the texture of old gnarled and twisted wood, especially tree stumps and dead branches that already have interesting shapes and movement. Guy’s carving styles constantly evolve and reflect the life experiences, imagination and inspiration that he gets from the natural beauty of wood. He endeavours to enhance his creations with movement, use of lines, negative spaces and contrasting colours and textures.
