Born in London, John Barrow traveled to Peru in 1969. His original work contract was for eight weeks, but he ended up staying. John has always enjoyed woodwork, a craft he learned from his father. 'Living in Peru, I got to know a variety of beautiful wood types,' John explains. 'When I retired, I was finally able to dedicate myself completely to my passion, carving! I have designed my own machines and tools to help me work the wood in a different way.'

I gave this wooden "tree of life" to my mother-in-law for Christmas. She has freestanding "favorite artwork" shelves in her sun room and displays it proudly, which I consider a very good thing as she truly has a lot of pieces of arts and crafts to display. The colors in this piece are gorgeous; deep, rich and varied, and the wood carving itself is impressive. It's large enough to be well noticeable but small enough not to overtake other pieces displayed along with it. I hope I can find another gift in this line again as I feel sure the quality would be very good.Read More
