Look what arrived in our driveway a few days ago! It’s an 8ft moon gazing hare, carved out of a tree trunk by our very talented friend, Richie Clarke…. using a chainsaw. I have a thing about hares anyway, but this particular hare is especially deserving of adoration. I just love him!
If you were at the Ploughing Championships last week you may have seen Richie doing some chainsaw carving at the Husqvarna stand. Along with the hare, he made some other pieces, including this rather cool Wizardly type fella, called ‘Ole Husky’.
Not sure where in Caravantasia the hare will be living yet, but for the time-being we’re enjoying having him in the driveway and watching visitors do a double-take when they see him.
You can see more of Richie’s work on his facebook page. www.facebook.com/irish.woodcarving
