Carving a Life Size Statue #1: Crucifixion

05-13-2016 10:20 PM by Dennis Zongker | 14 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog on the steps of a project. This one is on a full life size 6’-0” Jesus with a 12’-0” cross which is one of three life size sculptures I will be carving for a new Retreat here in the Midwest,which I have 18 months to complete. The pictures show some drawing and clay steps at half scale, then I can move to wood at full scale. This has been a big challenge for me studying human anatomy, which is not very easy for t...

Inlay Using Faux Material

04-14-2016 03:29 PM by Kelly | 2 comments »

Some time back, members of the Wanapam tribe, here in North Central Washington, bought a couple of my walking sticks. As well, they expressed interest in a unique one I’m currently working on. Meanwhile, the Wanapams opened are really nice interpretive center, which I had the pleasure of touring. In the course of that tour, I saw many photographs of work being done on hides, dug outs, various activities and so on. The visit to the Center inspired to create some of the things I s...

I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want.

My Goddard Newport Tallcase Clock

03-13-2016 04:48 PM by RogerBean | 6 comments »

LJ Mark recently sent me a note and noticed I’d been off line for a while and asked what I was working on.
