Another dragonportal, made in slowgrowing highland pine. Also in the Familys style. Both Projects are ofc handcarved only.
The dining room table and Chairs is one of the most special commisions i have ever carved, its details are amazing and so small, and the time put into it is staggering. Its carved in high quality silver Birch and in the family accantus style. Carved together With my father and 2 uncels, i have carved most of the table and 3-4 Chairs. we try to carve so we make one Chair eatch to not mix Our personal style differences in detailing in one item.
Both Projects are copyrighted.
I am a bit afraid of posting some of the Things i make, i realy dont want the family patterns or photos spread to mutch, so thats one of the main reason i dont post more Things than i do, or add more detailed photos. But then again, its sad to not let others see the work one do and put so mutch effort into. Sadly i have already had to many encounters With copyists and ppl trying to do that already, so just being carefull from experience. And im only voicing this because im curious what others think abouth this. Am i overly causcious or?
I just love my Craft, the traditions and the honour in creating something that you have putt all Your knowledge,skill and love into. And then i encounter People With no understanding of the crafters morale, like this Winter, i had a student, she told me straight out that she only wanted to learn enaugh to be able to start producing replicas With a cnc to sell it cheap as souvenirs. I just had to tell her that i sadly could not be her teatcher anymore from that moment on, and that i would never contribute to see that happen, and she could not understand this.
And I, i dont understand this attitude at all, it just pains my crafter hearth.
That was the conserns of today :) I have just been pondering this for a vile and need to hear someone elses wiew on it.
Hope you like the portal and the dinningroom sett, i enjoyed making it.! :)
