Jilly Sutton is a woodcarver and beautiful Devon landscape that surrounds her home contributes much to the sublime beauty of Jilly’s sculpture. ‘I love the sense of life you get from a tree, Jilly says. ‘It’s warmth, tactility, its long history. I love trees growing, I love the wildlife they support even as they die, and I love working with them, knowing the relationship between each different tree’s contours and where you cut in. She works only with trees indigenous with the UK that have been felled or have fallen. Her preferred wood is cedar or lime
