Abstract chip carving

Abstract chip carving

This chip carving uses one element in many variations. The basic principle is a regular 90° triangle that is carved into the point. It gives a different shadow depending on how you hold it and creates a shifting pattern of areas that are lit or shadow.

Carved spider

Carved spider

A spider carved out of a piece of linden wood. A very fun project with lots of undercutting and through-cutting. As a self-taught sculptor I am always looking for new challenges and this spider was one of the more fun projects I completed recently.

 

Axe in chopping block

Axe in chopping block

I carved this axe several years ago out of a piece of birch wood. The reason the axe handle does not break off is because the piece of wood had a branch that grew sideways. This enabled me to use the long grain running at 90° to the stem for the handle, making it equally strong as its base.

 

Small wooden shoes

Small wooden shoes

A pair of wooden shoes carved out of a hard piece of mirabelle wood. The sculpture is one piece. The wooden shoes are partially hollowed out but not fully, as I didn’t have the small tools needed to get to the tip.
