I’m really diggin’ this new fella’. This is my newest woodcarving made from a piece of Big Leaf Maple burl. I love this wood because of its’ wonderful, unique shapes and ability to hold detail. The shape of this carving reminds me of one of the clocks from “Beauty and the Beast”.

Josh,

I don’t remember if I asked if it’s just intuitive when you carve or do you do a sketch first? Another wow piece.

Thanks folks :) DocSavage, it’s almost always intuitive… I only like to draw for shallow reliefs or linear work, the faces always seem to work themselves out :)
