Garden Sculpture

Welcome to

Set in some of Devon's most beautiful and unspoilt English countryside, Ben May lives and works at Lower Upcott Farm near Hatherleigh.

Ben May is a craftsman and an artist. In his rural studio, he creates unique wooden sculptures from the trees grown in local woodlands. Wooden Mushrooms are a speciality.

Our farm is run in a traditional manner, working the land with Shire horses. Here we create our own unique woodland art, and run a variety of courses where we demonstrate practical skills in woodland crafts for the novice or more experienced.

"Good morning. Just to let you know that the mushrooms were waiting for us when we got home on Thursday. Really pleased with them – they are lovely." Tessa
"Just a short message to let you know that I received Hedgehog and Fun Guy Mushroom today and we are very pleased with our purchase." Mr K H
"Ben, Just to say that having discovered your website recently, my husband was persuaded to buy me a flute bird bath. It looks wonderful in the border below a silver birch and I now have the added pleasure of watching the birds use it. A very nice present (I just wasn't tempted by those stone pompous looking birdbaths). I'm hoping it will get lots of admirers and I will pass on your details. All the best may your Forest Crafts flourish/continue to flourish. " Jackie G
