Title : Walter’s Wood Stile

Locatio ;  Ouston, Co. Durham, 1998

Material :  Elm 

Description :  The two sides of  a 7ft long board of elm were carved, each with a sinuous design  (one based on a pathway, the other a stream) which allowed for the inclusion of a variety of animal life. The rounded top was pierced through to give the appearance of sunset on one side and sunrise on the other, and the board then fixed as part of a stile.
