Commission reviews:
Eve
Debs worked on ‘Eve’ for me when I was going through a very difficult time. After my first husband, Rob Frost, died I was trying to work out what I should do - and more importantly who I was. This sculpture was prophetic - as the person Eve pushes her way out of the formless stone - I too had to learn to emerge from the chaos that life had become.
Jacqui

Heart's Desire
Heart's desire is made from a beautiful red stone and I feel the couple depicted represent unity and strength. The male figure being very protective of the female and his child. Protectiveness, strength and contentment radiate from the sculpture. It will always hold a special place in my heart...it is a very special blessing connected with marriage and children.
Rachel

Tawny Owl
A beautifully tactile owl with a very cheeky wink. She has been very sympathetically carved to take full advantage of the naturally occurring colours and tones in the alabaster stone - a perfect choice as these tonal variations give the impression of the owls feathers. Thanks Debs it's perfect.
