Welcome to the Artwork in Wood website, a showcase of new and original work from artist craftsman Grant Birse.
The work shown is primarily Islamic calligraphy compositions, traditionally hand carved in a variety of select figured hardwoods.
Each piece is a unique one-off artwork, expressing the beauty of Islamic calligraphy, offering the opportunity to contemplate the meanings contained within and also uniquely presenting the medium as a natural artwork, illuminating the compositions and reflecting the journey to understanding and realising the revealed word of God. "each cut of the chisel is an action with intention to reveal the inner".
All the new works shown here are available for purchase and can be securely shipped worldwide.
Individual commission work is welcomed, as is larger scale and on-site works, please get in touch with any requests or for further details.
