This boot is carved in honour of my maternal grandmother. She was just a swell person and I am the person I am today because of her quiet influence during my early years of my life. The roof and it’s gables remind me of her house where my family visited often. She was a small person and her boots were short and stocky. Never a dull moment being with her.
The carving medium is a lam beam which I cut with the grain to follow the boot height. In the photos the laminations do play a trick with your eyes but I can assure you that the blank was cut and carved squarely. Enjoy!
Roman, the Bootman!
