Ralph Williams

Having worked in the Department of Ornithology at the Natural History Museum, Ralph became self-employed in forestry and woodcarving. His bird sculptures are worked exclusively in wood which he collects and seasons himself. This close understanding of his chosen medium is evident in the unusual and surprising use of grain, colouration and other naturally occurring features unique to each piece of wood. Ralph's carvings have been commissioned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the BBC, the Hawk and Owl Trust and the organizers of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award. His work has been presented to HRH Princess Anne and purchased by the late Queen Mother. He became an elected member of the Society of Wildlife Artists in 1977. He is now based in Penwith and has had work exhibited throughout the UK, Europe, the US and Australasia.
