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

906 days ago by helluvawreck | 35 comments »

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. I didn’t get to first base and quit shortly after I started it. ...

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

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.

Further progress. Details on the twigs and buds are much easier to do with my new Helvie knife, I am really beginning to love the tool. I will be concentrating on my other project for a few days to get it established, then I will start splitting my days between the two.

Working down to the level of the leaves and starting to shape them out to see how much ‘in the round’ effect I am actually going to capture. So far, so good!

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…..

The Sawcliffe Green man #1: Drawing

48 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 3 comments »

This is a new piece I will be working on over the next 3 or 4 months. It is 5”x7”x3.20”, a small carving for me, the wood is Alaskan Yellow Cedar. All in all this will be an unusual project. I will be on a trip to Florida next week to visit my dad, and when I get back I will begin a full fledged commission work for a client/friend, a bust of her Swiss mountain dog! I will spend an hour or two on most days after the commission piece working on this Green man for The Sawcliffe...
