Commissions

 
Over the years, Robert has been commissioned to undertake many works - two of the most interesting are detailed below but others include:
  • Globe Theatre, London: Ionic capitals above the heads of the muses Tragedy and Comedy. Abacus on top of Corinthian capitals on main stage (see photo below).
  • Danesfield House, Marlow: decorating the new hammer beam ceiling, cornucopias, leaf work, cherubs, dragons and dolphins all in oak.
  • Brentwood Cathedral: Corinthian capitals in the round and square, carved in softwood for gilding. Large brackets with honeysuckle motif, again in softwood for painting.
     
Hand carved Royal Arms

Robert was invited to tender for the restoration and refurbishment of No.10 Downing Street.

The sheer amount of architectural carving involved deemed it necessary for several woodcarvers to be involved.

At the end of the project Robert was invited to carve the Royal Arms (approximately one metre square) which now adorns one of the State Rooms and is one of his most favourite commissions to date.
