Sophie Walker Wood Carving

Furniture and Wood

I make small-scale wooden sculptures designed to intrigue the curious. They often have hollow areas hidden by doors into which I place smaller found objects, curiosities, or poems, depending on the piece. I hand-carve a variety of different woods (Hazel, Apple, Rowan, Oak) and add metal detailing (copper, silver, and iron) with inks, handmade paper, cotton, and found natural materials. I love combining different textures and materials to create objects that fascinate and delight. When working to commission I include details specific to the recipient (eg. wedding poem lyrics) to create a piece that’s just as unique as they are..
