Steve Portchmouth produces large scale wildlife sculptures in both wood and metal at his Sculpture Workshop
in Higham Kent. Table-top to tree trunk sculptures are carved with delicate chainsaws, fine rasps and chisels.
The work attempts to reflect joy and respect. Carvings of Mammals, Birds, Amphibians, Reptiles, Insects, Fish,
all sorts of Flora, and Historical Characters and Artefacts, adorn Carved Seats, Benches, Tables,
Waymarker Posts and Totem Poles.
The sculptures are site specific and represent it's animals and stories.
The sculptures are mostly public, principally in Kent and the South East, with further installations around
England, Scotland, and Wales. Many sculptures are in unexpected remote places, with others in main centres
and picnic areas.
Sculptures can be found in Ashford and Canterbury Parks, various Countryside Parks, Nature Reserves,
Play Areas, ANOBs and SSSIs, alongside the Stour, the Pilgrims Way, and Havering Marshes Sculpture Trail.
Typical clients are County, Borough, and Parish Councils, Countryside Projects and Partnerships, Country Parks,
Schools, Wildlife Trusts, and private commissions.
