Wood Carving Sculpture ‘Flamestone’ by Michael Crook
Bring a warm glow into your home when you choose this wood carving sculpture ‘Tall Flamestone’ by Michael Crook.
Each ‘flame’ is from an individual piece of seasoned tulip wood which is hand sculpted to the desired shape, then sanded down to a smooth finish before being coloured using water-based dyes.
Once dried, each piece is re-sanded, sealed and finished with several coats of clear shellac polish, before being waxed. This colouring process does not cover the natural grain of the tulipwood but instead enhances it.
The flames are set into a Bath stone base using strong screws and glue. This wood carving sculpture will last indefinitely in a modern heated indoor environment but is not suitable for an outdoor location.

Wood Carving Sculpture Artist
Michel Crook has been creative since childhood and his interest in art and woodwork was ignited at school. He subsequently combined his love for these exciting subjects at Art college, resulting in a deep passion for wooden sculptures. And the rest they say is history!
Michael enjoys the privilege of taking an already unique and beautifully formed natural material and turning it into one of his splendid designs. He is inspired by the wondrous lines that exist all around us in the natural world. He likes to observe all kinds of things including birds, fish, the human form and flames to name but a few. These observations form the initial basis for his designs, but he is not subservient to the subject matter. Instead, the idea is allowed to alter, grow, and develop as he enters an artistic ‘flow’. This process means that every sculpture is unique and has its own special significance.
A perfectionist by nature, Michael’s sculptures are finished to an incredibly high standard. However, he knows that there is always more to learn and he continues to develop his understanding of old and new methods of wood finishing techniques.
Michael’s majestic sculptures are designed to adorn your interior space and are not suitable for an outdoor location. The designs are simply stunning and will suit both traditional and contemporary styled décor and will last a lifetime.
