About the Sculpture
This abstract sail form is designed specifically to make the most of the attributes of plywood. It is hand carved and shows how beautiful plywood sculptures can be if the right subject is chosen and the material is handled in the correct way. The sculpture shown here has been sold, but it can be commissioned. The price will depend on the size of the carving. Please feel free to contact us to discuss a commission.

‘J-Class’ forms part of Bill’s collection of stylised marine sculpture. “I have enjoyed several sailing trips in the past, and was always inspired by the many interesting and beautiful shapes formed by the sails in the wind. Plywood works well for these sculptures as the grain effect produced by the many layers of the wood looks particularly beautiful”. For a similar example, click here.
