Misericords, or ‘mercy-seats’, were first made in medieval times to help support priests while standing during long services, they have intricately carved undersides and were a masterwork of their time. Andrew was commissioned to follow the form of the mediaeval ‘mercy seat’ but with a satirical twist.
Using traditional tools and techniques, yet achieving exceptional precision and detail, Andrew worked with ancient oak to create these unique misericords which are not only masterpieces in their own right but honour and enhance the rich history of these historic churches.
