@ Lady Bay, SA
I had some fragments of Huon Pine, and remembered Dad’s observation: “Waste is the ultimate crime”….!
Huon Pine is such a pleasure to work: a luxury!
Wow. They are stunning
Thankyou Heather. I enjoy making them: miniature sculptures, or ‘okimono’ – each of them independent and unique.
Christopher, you found feathers in the wood you are carving. How beautuful they are.
Greetings Sneha – thankyou. I am hoping one day to create an object that has a life of its own – that seems always to have existed. Hokusai would surely approve of the aspiration, if not the result….
Chris your lovely feathers are almost delicate enough to float … one can go in your cap perhaps
That’s a nice idea – thankyou Lucy. But first things first: I need to obtain a cap….
Huon Pine is a delicate wood, beautiful to carve, marks easily. This last characteristic requires a lot of work to get a ‘clean’ finish.
Hi Christopher, I was wondering what you were up to. These remind me of a mother and child (of any species) kissing.
Interesting perspective! Each fragment has its own story.
I don’t think wood is well-suited to complicated design. Perhaps one day I shall arrive at the Uncarved Block….no intervention required!
I just mean that soft tender nurturing quality that you probably have being a Cancer, that you put into those feathers.
when’s the exhibition Chris
and, or, are they for sale, or will they be for sale?
Greetings Ruth. Well, I hope to assemble a Fleet (Flight?) of Feathers, and then see how it goes. I am sure they will be up for sale.
The feathers in the photos are shaped from Huon Pine. I will also try my hand with Myall: beautiful wood, as you know, but probably the hardest/toughest I have ever encountered….on par with Lignum Vitae!
