Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #2: Where no flowers grow during winter, The colouring.

03-20-2014 03:54 AM by koraile | 5 comments »

As you see, i have finaly come to the last part of the flower carving. I have the rough shape, and started the last part of sanding and detail shaping. I have always loved this part when it comes to these types of carvings, when at last the image i have had in my head takes form and gets Sharp, its like tuning a lense. The Picture finaly gets Clear, at this stage i have a hard time letting go. On this Project im working in the livingroom, you might have noticed :) Its cosy in my li...

Wood and I….Sculpture ….while walking down the isles of life’s design,i was roiled enough to loose my way on a walk-about,the forest and trees no-longer fed this hunger within,and for days becoming years my dreams died as inaesthetic…. ….that was in-deed the hole i dug until i had no-strength dig deeper,what came next was confronting my dragon and refusing his lies any-more,so i went back to the woods fearing to hope and believe what i might find,what i found was that ...

Wood gloat

10-04-2011 02:47 PM by joey bealis | 1 comment »

I have a wood gloat. A neighbor of mine is going to build a new house in town and purchased a piece property that had a bunch of pecan trees on it. He ended up needing 4 of them cut down and i was able to get what i wanted from the trees before people came and got firewood. So i now have enough pecan to turn bowls for a few years. If anyone is in the central Mississippi area and would like some give me a post. There are a few more logs not in the pictures!

A Brush Stroke of Illusion ....at end of day, when all my world has had it’s say, and now i am giving these places in my heart, a time to settle down for a good nights rest…. —-comes the longing crisp of a brushes breath, and so i give the right to let the colors fly,while painting this wood with sealing stealth, where once again i impart a stop gap by and by…. —-wondering now i watch the dance, as brush gives color streams of pigment gloss, while who ca...

Woo Hoo, Part Deux #2: There's gold in them thar logs!

11-13-2007 07:19 AM by Douglas Bordner | 25 comments »

The story, for those unfamilar with the first entry, is that I was driving through the neighborhood. Truth be told I had the feeling there was going to be something I was going to find.

I was frustrated because most of the sections were massive. And when I went to toss one in the bed of th...

Untrammeled Possibilities and Unexpended Opportunities ....out here is where i was first awakened, awakened to what-where-when and why, awakened to all the un-trammeled possibilities that call my name, awakened to the un-expended opportunities i gather to….

Workshop Principles ….taking time out, as i waundered home after the days work, is an intoxicating drink of heady ale, where those who stop and drink can soon get lost in an-other time and era….And it is in these places where I oft do stop, to taste my dreams and set them free….so I invite you to come along and lets cover some ground in these forest of trees where ones, such as I can still dwell. These were taken around 7:00 pm the other night as I was coming in from a...
