Wood Sculptures

Wood Sculptures carved by Mick Burns can be ordered directly through FORGE ARTS - see a selection of typical garden sculptures. Having roots firmly entrenched in Scotland, Mick gets his inspiration from the stunning scenery and local wildlife and cares deeply about the landscape. He uses timber that has been felled by storms or regeneration projects and produces work in all sizes - from small sculptural pieces to giant outdoor statues. All carvings can be stained with coloured dyes, wood stains and long lasting preservatives, depending on their final resting place. Chainsaw carvings are unusual, long lasting and truly unique and are ideal for:

  • Large and small gardens and patios
  • Children's play parks and school gardens
  • Parks and woodland
  • Birthdays, weddings, retirement gifts
  • Hotel or office receptions and grounds
  • Shops
  • Commemorative items
