On a recent visit to the wet side of Vanc. Island I met George Yearsley aka Feather George e-mail email@example.com I found his work stimulating and set about carving in a similar mode.
|Rough out stage|
I contacted a local carver Ed Raaflaub and he offered me a tutorial at his workshop in Duncan. Ed is an expert bird carver and a master at power carving. I am not enamoured with this method finding the noise and dust unpleasant and instead prefer to work with sharp edge tools. Ed showed me his method of shaping a feather and I adapted that to my style.
|I will aim for thinner on next one ! 🙂|
I am quite pleased with my first effort which is now back lit be placing it in the kitchen window .
