Relief engraved wood by Chris Reeson
While always a maker, Chris has recently left a career in Design Education to develop his own creative interests. His current work brings together elements of photography, drawing, woodworking and manufacturing, to create a unique and personal piece of work. His love of the West Country, both moorland and coast, is highly evident in his engraved images. Chris uses the individual grain of the chosen piece of wood to add a third dimension to each image. Trees and reflections are often prominent, intricate detail being an obvious fascination.
