News from DEREK PEARCE – sculptor of the Original Hippo Table

September 2010

John Cleese bought one of my Hippo Tables a few years ago and it lived happily in his house at Notting Hill, London until recently, when his ex wife ran off with the table!

This upsetting situation was soon rectified – we made Mr Cleese a new Hippo and he likes it better than the first. It was carved from a large ‘cottonwood’ tree felled on the riverbank of the Thames near Chiswick in London.

He has also asked for a Dining Table to seat eight- featuring woodland animals – we are working on this at the moment, to date we have a squirrel or two, a fox, a bird, some mice and a mole... In fact Fiona’s face turned ashen when I offered to show her my ‘mole’!

I have an exhibition planned for next Easter 2011 at the centre for excellent makers - Kew Bridge Steam Museum, Kew London. Please contact me by email if you'd like to come along.

Oh, I forgot to mention the six foot Giraffe I am also carving at the moment, I’ll tell you all about that next time.

Derek is also working on a Development of Code 6 houses on the Isle of Wight.
