Lady in Silk Scarf

Carved from life sculpture I produced. Sculpture was wrapped in Silk to use as a model. My attempt here is to blend my clay sculpture studies with woodcarving. I chose to wrap her in silk to add an element of drapery to the figure. I am a lover of Classic European Woodcarving and I wanted to mimic this in the carving.

I like that a lot. I want to do a life size Cougar out of Sypracuse or some other outdoor wood to sit a top of a fountain.

Sounds like a great idea. I once knew a chainsaw carver who carved one out of Catalpa.

Wow! Good work on the drapery. I’d say that you’re blending the clay and wood studies quite well.

I think you are down the shore? I was looking at your site. I will have to spend some time looking at your vacuum press. The trouble is there is so much information on this site that you could spend all of your time here. I have a days work to do so I better get started. Thanks for the nice comments and for sharing.
