Roger Hardy

Roger Hardy is an artist from Suffolk. His wooden pieces are carved from preserved, ancient river wood found on the shores of East Anglia. A few of Hardy's artworks are made from extremely hard, petrified black oak. This wood is thousands of years old, and tells us about the nomadic tribes who made it to Britain during the last Ice Age; crossing the land bridge of Doggerland, which is now the North Sea. Some of the timbers Hardy uses may come from the raised walkways early settlers built across the marshland. Roger regularly shows at Snape Maltings during their summer arts festival. Carved works are available in bronze.
