Thorn Carving is part of the ‘Fallen’ collection by sculptor and letter carver Jo Sweeting. The collection is a celebration and memorial to the overlooked, forgotten and transient. While out walking in Autumn, Jo found herself looking at the ground where many beautiful objects such as feathers, twigs and lichen had fallen. They were simple yet exquisite when held and viewed closely. Jo walks on chalk in the landscape where she resides, and often finds large boulders of chalk, which she has sliced for this series of works. Each and every work carved by Jo is a talisman imbued with a certain time, place or memory. The delicate, friable nature of chalk makes it highly challenging to carve, resulting in beautifully imperfect lines and marks.
