My very first effort carving from a 10cm square block into a round not so 10cm size block.
The original block size with unlacquered piece.
A second project while working on the owl is a carved flower from Huon Pine which is in collaboration with my friend who does beautiful pyrography to be included in a huge wall hanging. Made from timber(of course) with random sizes and types of timber bits arranged into an artful display. Interesting shapes and colours create a scene we hope pleases everyone and sparks conversations.
I will try to take photos later and post. This is what I have at present and today I burnt some shaded areas on the flower.
These three pieces are 11x8cm and the other two are burnt with a botanic theme with hand coloured flowers but runs across both pieces which are situated under this one on the backboard.
