Winter Beast Gunnie
Winter Beast Gunnie is sculpted by Frances Pelly from wood grown on the artist’s own land. Envisioning fantastical beasts drawn from traditional Norse and Inuit stories, this hand-hewn sculpture is imbued with a relic-like quality.
This decorative piece is borne from nature, and inspired by the magic of Norse and Inuit literature. Recalling the special storytelling traditions of Orkney, where she lives and works, each object has been slowly and carefully, sculpted in wood to give the impression of weathered bone. Combining traditional craft techniques with a deep affinity to the wild and enchanting nature of surroundings, Frances’ work forges a connection to the cultural and physical world she inhabits.
