One can easily appreciate why Tim Pomeroy is highly-regarded and sought-after as a stone carver when one sees this exhibition of recent works. A native Scot, his works are often inspired by archaeological sites in Scotland, especially Neolithic and Bronze Age ones. They are executed in a variety of stones such as slate, granite, sandstone and marble.

Pine cones, seed heads and other natural forms as well as man-made everyday objects such as the humble screw can provide a subject too. He sees it as “finding a language to address the gods or spirits that accompany us as we travel through this life”.

It certainly seems to work.
