Barrel Carving  Peter Forbes is a talented British Columbia artist continuously experimenting with new techniques and media. Formally educated in art and design, Peter first picked up carving tools and experimented in wood and other three dimensional works, while sailing the high seas for more inspiration. Since then, Peter has gravitated to the specialty signage industry, crafting a legacy of work that decorates many local businesses, and those in Europe, Australia, Japan, the Middle East and the United States. Peter has now been inspired to establish himself with a unique style of artwork on recycled oak barrels. The designs range from simple to very complex and become family heirlooms as well as wonderful adornments, advertising tools or basic signage. (BC)
