2536 days ago by frank | 0 comments »

Designer’s Evolution at having Livid Imagination What happens when the door is opened and ‘livid imagination’ meets the powers that are written in wood? ....these are the thoughts that transform my desire for design, much as the stretching of an old wineskin when new wine is poured in, and as my horizon is gone to vertical mode of jacob’s latter, i am culled out to release some jewels of what amasses within my head…. —-designer’s evolution is...

Terpsichore Foliage Waunderings ….finding the lightness of your weight, i was stopped in my tracks by the rightness of your step, as you swung to and fro with elliptical ecstasy, till after being inspired once again i gave thanks….

Le Roi est mort

2546 days ago by scottb | 3 comments »

The king is dead. A few weeks back, while we sure had some fierce gusts of wind, which caused my chess trellis to tip over. And while the (wood only) joinery of my trellis survived the impact with the ground (rocks and/or pottery) the wood itself did not. I found everything still together, save for the King himself. I originally intended to reattach it, but had the quick inspiration… a little poetic je ne sais quoi… some sort of “art (or hidden meaning) is in the e...

2552 days ago by Buckskin | 5 comments »

Given my recent success with my carving projects. Granted they are simple and beginner level which fits me at this point. However, I have decided to up the ante and create a whole new set of challenges for my self. The photo below represents about six hours worth of work in layout, rough out and finally picking up a gouge. The piece is about 6 3/4” by about 8 1/2”. It is being made from a piece of 2×12 SPF that used to be a leveling block under our TV set in our old ho...
