TAILSPIN – SCULPTURE IN APPLEWOOD

P1080399(1) P1080402(1)

A change of pace and medium. I get given small trunks of trees and the sizes rather restrict the possibilities, but I was pleased with the outcome of this one. Carving through the outer wood and into the heartwood gives some interesting tonal changes. The strip of wood has the feeling of fabric in freefall.

THE BALANCE OF IMPROBABILITY – CARVED WOOD IN PEAR

P1070362(1) P1070363(1)

A change of pace and materials. My old pear tree succumbed to honey fungus and I got myself a new one and decided to make something out of the trunk. As it wasn’t very big I was a bit limited to subject and thought about carving a backbone. In the end I opted for the easy option.
