Wood Sculpture ‘Thandie’ by Michael Crook
This majestic wood sculpture is a simplified and abstracted study of a beautiful, elegant and stylish woman. The figure stands in a dramatic pose, inviting compliments from all those who view her.
Created from one piece of seasoned ‘Sapele’ wood. The figure is set onto a sculpted Bath stone base which is also shaped to enhance the flowing lines of the figure sculpture. The wood sculpture is sealed, polished with a clear shellac and finally waxed.
This fabulous will last indefinitely in a modern heated environment but is unsuitable for an outdoor location.

Wood 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.
