I came across The American’s Creek quote and I just had to carve it. The biggest challenge was how would I present this quot to show it’s true importance. I chose to make the complex mahogany frame to grab your attention and draw you in to see just what there might be inside it’s borders. After I carved the quot I wanted to add some kind of decoration and I found that complex frame added a degree a difficulty that I wasn’t expecting but after many design ideas I settled on what you see.
The piece is 42” x 29” made of mahogany and basswood. The mahogany frame is stained and the basswood panel was bleached and then chip carved.
