As you know, every year I create a “Works of Heart” benefitting a local charity. This is a heart shaped leaf, that has a vine around the stem and placed into a limestone that I carved and placed onto an old piece of Bubinga. I put long oak dowel rods in the base to keep it from breaking.
I am liking making these leaf shapes and they really are beautiful. The leaf is carved out of maple. This entire sculpture is about 32 inches tall. The rod is made of aluminum.
I always love your feedback. Of course I finished it with tung oil and wax sanded to 4,000 grit.
