Mary May's on line wood carving lessons ***AND turning blanks for carving a Philly Highboy rosette #3: FOURTH ENTRY Celtic Knots and Tudor Rose

10-28-2014 06:57 PM by xraydav | 0 comments »

One of the lessons was on Celtic Knots. I was fascinated with the subject and chose to pull some designs I liked off of the net and came up with three I liked… The first one was 3 loops intertwined and I like it because of its basket weave appearance. Next I wanted to try a simple infinity loop looking design… And then I decided to design one myself. There was a very cool Celtic Knot with a circle woven into it… so I decided to draw it into a hexagon and lea...

IT seems a natural transition to pass to this simple and effective style of wood-carving after some preliminary exercises in the Dragon or Viking manner. The Byzantine style of decoration dates from the early half of the sixth century to the conquest of the Eastern Roman Empire by the Crusaders, a.d. 1204. Among its characteristics are the extremely pointed treatment of the acanthus, and much veining the leaves. In Byzantine architecture, the round arch and dome are conspicuous features. T...

FIRST ENTRY Have been selling these deck cooler cabinets pretty well this summer. My twist is to carve on the front of them. Team logos, peoples names, company logos… etc. But my carving skills were defined by he sharpness of the Knack knife I was using.
