Romney Chest

This chest was commissioned by a customer from Romney Marsh following the 2014 Artists Open House event. Commissioned pieces require that I select all of the wood before I start work, unlike my usual 'make it up as I go' method of working, so I have included here a photo of the driftwood from which this chest is made.
The two carved panels on the front depict a pair of Herons engaged in an imaginary encounter.
