I read with interest your article on the wood carver Claus Hartmann in the March 2014 issue of Sea Breezes.
I have to say that this is not the only carver of figureheads. The one proudly displayed on the bow of the Glenlee was carved by Marvin Elliot at his workshop on the Isle of Arran.
He is also noted for his scrimshaw work which can be seen by visiting his website; www.culptercarver.com.
