This is a new one I just finished for a show and it turned out a little better than I thought. Using intarsia as a medium, it has always been hard for me to do people and make them look right. I have had the walnut behind the girl for about two years now waiting for a project that would bring out the color changes in that piece of wood (it was actually around a knot in the wood that would be right behind the lady). It ended up using 125 pieces and is 20 inches tall by 16 inches wide.

It was made from blood wood, yellow heart, mahogany, cherry, aspen, babinga, lignum, walnut, curly maple, and ebony. No stains or dyes were used and it has a satin finish.

Well it may have been hard to get it right in the past Kory…. but that’s in the past.
This is very right.
From her elegant fingertips to the her tippy toes, she’s perfect.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I imagine that faces and eyes would be the most challenging. This piece has that avant-garde look without trying to be too realistic. It looks great…...........................

It may be hard for you to do the human form, but this wood sculpture shows that you can definitely make them
look right. You have also mastered the craft of selecting and forming the right woods to make the entire
project blend together and look terrific. Thank you for sharing.
