This Thursday I’m sharing another photo from the same visit to Ightham Mote last year. I took this primarily because of the ornate carvings in the woodwork surrounding the fireplace. The directional light from a large window really brought out the three-dimensionality of it all. I have a thing for woodwork, and I couldn’t just pass this by. It’s also something I wanted to be able to show my dad – I knew he’d appreciate it, for he’s the one who taught me most of what I know when it comes to wood. I’ve done a fair bit of woodwork but I haven’t tried my hand at carvings. Who knows, perhaps one day I’ll find the project to try it on.
