Cle des Champs in Dunham Quebec 2010. My theme was Transformation. The log represented the cocoon and became the caterpillar. The caterpillar later transformed into many butterflies.

Interesting… how the suggestion of form creates the form itself.

A new twist to woodworking! I like it, love the bears people make out of the logs as well.

Unique transformation of a sculpture, sure looks like you awed many people, your artistic ability has no bounds. I’m truly amazed. Kudos.

Thank-you all for the uplifting comments. I will continue for as long as I can. Quebec girls are beautiful, and Montreal is about the closest thing to Amsterdam that I have ever experienced. I have done ice but it sucks when it melts and the carb hates ice dust. I do believe art has no bounds and I’m only getting started.
