Inspiration came from an old carving seen in a museum; a side carving on a mirror. This had a mermaid at its centre but only nebulous shapes around it. My carving design developed into a marine theme. At the same time I wanted to try out wood dyes (for the first time) to give it some colour but not obscure the wood.
