Green Men and Wood Spirits #2: My Second Green Man - It's larger and deeper.

11-11-2011 12:03 AM by helluvawreck | 21 comments »

This green man is from a pattern by the famous artist and woodcarver, Lora S Irish. The pattern is in her book, Relief Carving Wood Spirits: A Step-By-Step Guide for Releasing Faces in Wood . I love this book and Lora Irish has inspired me. After carving this pattern in my last blog entry I decided that I wanted to do a second version of the carving, only larger and deeper.

Green Men and Wood Spirits #1: My First Green Man

This is my first carving of a Green Man. This is carved from the pattern that is in the book, Relief Carving Wood Spirits: A Step-By-Step Guide for Releasing Faces in Wood by Lora S. Irish. She is one of my favorite woodcarvers and artists. She has inspired me a lot. I attempted this carving about 8 months ago and shortly after I started I realized that I didn’t have enough skill nor did I know enough to complete it.

shaped the acorns a bit more, and have come to agree with some others that they need to be shorter.

The reworking of the acorns and twigs went faster than I thought! Took one day to excise the twigs, shape the acorns and checker the caps. Finish carving the twigs went smoothly as did their repositioning and gluing. Onto the ‘Jasper’ carving next. When I come back to this I will be working on the acorns and the last of the leaf areas undone on the sides of the cheeks…..

Progress on the Sawcliffe Green man this morning. I am now working on this and my new commission, ‘Holly’s Jasper’ at the same time. This is something new for me as I am so OCD I can hardly concentrate on two things at once! Once I glue up the other project, I will come back to this one while the other dries…..

Finishing up the final details. Checked the caps on the cheekcorns, curved the upper lip and hollowed the mouth, veining the leaves. After sanding and finish, I will build a box to ship it to the UK.
