Thanks to Dick Kelly for sharing his carving: Samurai Hornets in the Member's Gallery! This stunning piece is made from Cherry, Maple and Bass woods, with a polychrome-acrylic wash.
The originality of this piece is quite compelling for Carrie, prompting her to get back into the workshop and try something new!
And if you are looking for inspiration, do browse through the Members Gallery. Don't think about copy what you see so much as using it as a springboard: Could you change it? Improve it? Add or subtract or add to it? Find a different purpose or another context? Can you see a different style in which to execute the carving? How can you make someone else's idea truly your own?
