Heraldic Art in the News!


There's a nice (albeit short) article at Rochdale Online about Charlie Oldham's commission by the Oldham Borough Council to carve the Borough's achievement of arms (and seven other coats of arms and badges) for display in the Oldham Civic Centre.


The large achievement is six feet in diameter, making this a really impressive piece of work.  Of course, Mr. Oldham is a member of the Society of Heraldic Artists, and it's easy to see why looking at his work above.  (I wish the photo from the article were a little clearer; I'd really like to see more of the details of some of the smaller carvings.)

The full article, and another photograph of some of the work in progress in his workshop, can be found on-line at http://www.rochdaleonline.co.uk/news-features/2/news-headlines/81516/rochdale-man-carves-oldham-coat-of-arms
