Liz Mangles carves rocking horses, hobby horses, carousel animals as well as a whole flock of upholstered sheep.  Her work is characterised by a lively carving style and a spirit of joy and vitality in all her animals.

Liz trained for five years as a rocking horse maker, before moving to the more demanding field of fairground carving. She sculpts English lime wood with traditional tools to create her distinctive lively designs. A love of animals  gives her work a feeling of vitality and movement.

In 1989 she carved 24 large horses for a restored 1884 steam galloper. Since then she has carved many other fairground animals including reindeer, cockerels, sheep (one of which the Countess of Wessex owns), rabbits, dolphins, sea lions and hippocampi.  In 1998 she was featured on Channel 4's "Collector's Lot", making a camel for a stately home in Shropshire.

This website gives examples of Liz's work and shows a number of items that Liz holds in stock for sale such as hobby horses.  To place an order, or to commission a special piece of work from Liz, please contact her directly
