Contact through the website from Robert Bailey a retired Viola de Gamba Maker, has revealed another interesting work by Gino. A carved pattern for casting Bronze and Brass door knockers.
This attractively naive carving in Lime wood, shows a slightly unusual style for Gino’s wood carvings. Although less detailed than most of his work, this intriguing character holds all the usual motion and movement.
This carving depicts Christopher Simpson a 17th century composer for the viol. The wood carving itself is a 3D reproduction from an illustration of Mr Simpson as requested by Robert.
The brass and bronze cast door knockers are ensconced worldwide with several appearing on doors in Norwich.
Thank you to Robert for reaching out, providing these photos and helping us to grow this record of Gino’s work further.
