I haven’t uploaded anything for a long time now. My laptop broke a few months back, lost some important files and just lost interest in uploading new works. If anything, I made more works and improved my craft when I limited myself to using the internet just 3hr a weeks.
Anyway, I had my first solo exhibit in the Philippines a few months back. I made about 20 unique furniture/sculpture pieces based on the book and characted of Alice and Wonderland. This particular pieces is the 4th version of the cervical chair I uploaded last time. Frog Footman was a minor characted in the story but he is the characted that had his head “off”. This one now targets the c3 section on the spine, I improved the lower back by carving it to have full contact on the latissimus dorsi of a 5’8 person. On the seat, I made the pelvic bone more comfortable on wood by carving a small pocket in the middle for the coccyx (tail bone). I then carved two more pockets just half an inch deep for the left and right ischium of our hip bone. Another addition is the matching footrest fit to support a persons calf muscles and heels. The materials I used is no different from my previous works made from reclaimed old wood.
Google Frog Footman if you want to see the photos of the character’s depiction.
Also, my first solo exhibit was a success with more than half of the pieces sold during te ingress period or the night before the opening. This cervical chair was the first one sold.
Thank you to those who continue to support my art. More and bigger things to come.
