Collection of Heraldic Beasts

There are several pieces of John's work that are finished and available for immediate purchase.

These include his magnificent Heraldic Beasts such as lions, griffins, wyverns, eagles, unicorns, etc, which can be used as either free standing sculptures to adorn your hallway or an alcove or for finials for staircase newel posts.

All are designed and hand carved by John from either solid oak or walnut.  Each beast is different and take John many hours to carve and finish by hand.  Only when he is satisfied that the piece is perfect John signs and numbers each one.

These sculptures and finials are available in a range of finishes and sizes, please contact him for further details or to buy.
