Sculptures and Carving in Wood

Deepavali Mythri’  The name is derived from "Deepavali" which is the Hindu festival of lights and "Mythri" which means friendship. It is carved from a salvaged Flame She Oak tree trunk and spiraling root system. 
Deepavali Mythri..carved by Guy Breay

"A Planter's Reflections"  carved from 5 varieties of salvaged tree stumps. A Planter's Reflections carved by Guy Breay

These are examples of Guy’s styles, contrasting the sensuous, polished curves, with the rough, natural irregularities of these rare and beautiful Western Downs timbers.



The main source of Guy's inspiration is in the natural shape, texture and colours of the timber with which he works. Guy's carvings are also echoes of his life in India and Papua, places he and Jan have visited and friends they have met.
