After the great reveal, the residents of Knaresborough actually became fans of Craggs’ work, and they now look forward to seeing more sculptures pop up around town. This is not the artist’s first public exhibition – Craggs has competed in chainsaw carving competitions all over the world, earning commissions outside homes, cafes, and fairs in many countries. One of his biggest pieces is a collection of wild animal lining the trails of a nature walk in Allensford Park in Durham, England. Visitors can enjoy the outdoors while following the serpentine tail of a lizard, the jagged back of a toad, or the delicate wings of a giant wooden butterfly.

Previously a tree feller, Craggs’ expert carvings are an expression of his deeply seeded interest in art and beauty, as well as his knowledge of wood and nature. With dozens of carved sculptures under his belt, we hope he heads to the U.S. soon to share his awesome skills.
