From the bigger, bosting picture we take a next 'pass' around the frog, clarifying the forms and sneaking up on that leg inside the bowl.

Deborah - Carving anything in the round, I take a series of 'passes' (bosting 1, 2 etc). Each pass covers the whole subject. I naturally tend to favour the 'easy bits' but all parts are relative to each other and it's usually asking for trouble finishing one part too well before others. So I try and start the passes at different places. I think from 'front' and 'back' in this case were just the neat way it went.

Chris, you mention that worked from back to front through the bosting stages and reversed that order for the rest of the carving. Why?
