ansi Hemming-the Welsh woodcarver and chainsaw sculptor.
(Last updated Friday, April 4, 2008)
I was born in the Carmarthenshire village of Crugybar but spent much of my childhood on the remote South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha where my father was Post Master General and Radio Operator. On returning to Wales my parents, Alan and Jean Hemming ran the Post Office at Crugybar.
When I was twenty my Dad, by then a professional woodcarver, taught me to carve. For several years I made a living making Welsh Lovespoons before becoming a chainsaw carver.
Recently I have carried out many unique carving commissions for local authorities, Forest Services and private customers.
I live in an old farmhouse near Lampeter, Ceredigion with my family and Welsh Terrier, Drewi . I have a Dennis r-series flat bed fire engine to take my carvings to shows. I am happy to consider further carving commissions large or small. You can contact me by E-mail.
