Riverina based creators of
PADDOCK PIECES Des & Eileen Carroll
When did you begin sculpting?
It started as a hobby when we retired from farming.
How would you describe your design style?
Rustic and somewhat different garden art.
Who are the designers, things or materials that inspire you?
We develop our own designs.
How does a typical day of work go for you?
Des spends most of the day in the shed everyday & I help
out when I can and/or assistance is required, which
is most of the time!
What is your creative process when designing a new piece?
Trial and error as in all new designs until we are
satisfied with the finished product.
How would you like people to feel when they own your designs?
Hopefully, they choose our designs as an enhancement
to their homes and/or properties.
What makes your designs unique?
They are not entirely unique, however all our designs are
created from old & rusty disused wire etc from rural communities.
What is your advice to aspiring designers?
Patience, perseverance and a lot of time in the shed.
What will you be selling at the June Handmade Market?
We will have a variety of our designs on display and take
orders on the day for any other sizes or
materials customers require.
