About Thormod Morrisson

Traditional woodcarver specialising in Celtic and Norse mythology.

Thormod Morrisson

Biography / CV of Thormod Morrisson

Thormod Morrisson is a traditional woodcarver, using hand tools such as knife, axe, mallet, chisels and gouges in the main. His influences include Norse, Pictish, Celtic and Far Eastern art. He has studied the old myths, legends and folklore, and runes for over 20 years. This, as well as his love for the natural world, is reflected in his work. His interest in Celtic and Viking history and mythology has been a constant one.
Thormod aims to achieve an ancient rustic look to his works, especially those of a Celtic and Norse mythological nature, for greater authenticity.
His Norse Scottish clan originally held the hereditary post of logsogumašr or breitheamh (lawman) to the Lords of the Isles. Thormod is based in Fife, Scotland.

Reviews of work by Thormod Morrisson

"I recently purchased both a set of runes and a specially commissioned statue of Odin from Thor`s Hammer Woodcraft. My best expectations as to the quality and attention to detail were exceeded. Thormod worked with me to get both the runes and the statue just as I wanted them; both are unique, one-of-a kind pieces that I`ll have and enjoy for the rest of my life. In fact, the quality of his workmanship is such that it`s entirely likely that my purchases will last longer than I will! My order was carried out expeditiously and arrived securely and safely packaged. In short, I don`t see how a buyer could go wrong ordering anything from Thor`s Hammer Woodcraft. At a time when the world seems to be sinking from the weight of so much mass-produced plastic manufactured junk, it does one`s heart good to know that tradition and quality still exist, and at a reasonable price. Thank you so much!"

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."

Customer comment on 'Little Owl (Small Carved Wood on Post carvings/statues/statuettes)' by Nigel Sardeson

Thank you for providing me with such a great service and wonderful sculpture …

I can say more....

It`s a present for my fathers 80th and the perfect thing to have found for someone who already has most things! He`s an ornithologist too and adores the garden. We have bought it as a family and Nigel engraved our family crest on to it and went out of his way to deliver it to us saving us a fortune! It`s so heavy!
