Chip carving journey

10-28-2017 01:23 PM by FancyChip | 7 comments »

When I decided to study wood carving in the university almost 10 years ago, in 2008, all my “friends” rotated the forefinger close to the temple and told that I had gone mad. At that moments I checked my feelings from the taken decision, and, you know, did not feel that I had gone mad (although from such a constant reminder I already began to doubt myself), did not feel the “wrong” choice – I was in anticipation of what awaits me while studying, I was, after all,...

It's all about respecting someone else's work

10-22-2017 06:14 PM by FancyChip | 11 comments »

I do not mind that my patterns were used by other people in their works: especially when there is an appropriate question about if it’s possible to use them or not? (there are especially kind and inspiring requests about using my patterns that I keep in my soul); I do not mind sending the album / all my albums of patterns to all those who, I feel, really need them. But what I will never be able to understand is that when a person crosses the line of the property of others’ works a...

A drawn and a carved pattern

10-11-2017 07:04 AM by FancyChip | 2 comments »

It seems to me that a drawn pattern and a carved one are completely different things.

What looks good on paper could look not so good as a whole composition on wood – maybe, because of the depth of carving. So, when preparing a pattern for carving on paper, it is necessary to mentally relate it to the patt...

Past mistakes teach you how you can be better

10-03-2017 11:00 AM by FancyChip | 4 comments »

I learned not to distant myself from what I have done in my chip carving journey earlier – neither what I’ve done at the very beginning of it – 10 years ago, nor 5/4/3/2 years/months ago – but to take it. What’s really important for me now is not to look at my old works/carving and find mistakes there (and also be ashamed of them), but to focus on what I do now, at this very moment, to make my chip carving and works better. Because past mistakes can’t be ba...
