Christmas Blue Magpie – Artist Profile: Benedict Homer

Unique handmade natural wood sculpture

As a youth Ben helped raise funds for his local Young Farmers Club by picking cider apples and perry pears at the weekends from the ground to be processed. As it turned out he was really bad at this simple process as he became fascinated by how gnarly, knobbly and rotten the fruit were.

Today this fascination has inspired a series of unique sculptural apples and pears created taking advantage of natural growths and flaws in the wood.

Benedict will be at the market on Sunday only
