  • Little Elf/Troll

    Hot off the bench today, first carving of 2019. This little guy was inspired by the carvings of polish carver Miroslaw Czeladka. Love his little trolls/elves/whatever they are, so thought I give one a try. This little dude is about 3" tall, carved from a scrap of basswood and painted with oils. As always comments are welcome. Thanks for looking, and happy New Year to all!

      Your little guy is different and definitely cute.
      His nice friendly face is carved close to his boot.

      The pattern is Polish, so I haven't seen it before.
      The whole darn carving sits close to the floor.

      I hope we'll see more carvings with the Czeladka touch.
      They're unusual, distinctive, nicely painted and such.

        Cute little fella! I think I might have to try to carve his Brother.

            Nicely done and unique. I'm not familiar with "Miroslaw Czeladka's" work and had to look him up. Really some nice carvings by him. Thanks for posting this.

                    Thanks for all the kind words folks, and I got a poem by Rodster!! If you're not familiar with Miroslaw's work, he's on facebook, or you can google him. Seems like a really nice guy, and we've chatted a couple of times. He carves his guys in lime wood, and uses "aqueous rustic stains" for coloring. His final finish is hot beeswax which he uses as a polish. This is all according to the conversations he and I have had. Thanks again all!
