  • Cherry Blossom

    Cheery blossom is one of my favourite subjects to carve so i thought id have a go at carving some from boxwood. I wanted to see how thin i could go without it being too fragile. It looks really weak but because the way box wood is structured its actually pretty robust.
    Its stained with dyes i've been working on making for while but still not happy with it. { never mind i'll get it right soon }Finished the piece with 4 coats of Tung oil.
    Would like to know what you think.....Thanks Rich

    Hi Rich, I really like that a lot. It would make a wonderful necklace or maybe a pendant. Great job

      Rich,

      I'm not sure if I've ever commented on your carvings before. But I'd like to say at least once that all of your work is absolutely fantastic, and this one is no exception.

          I think it's simply beautiful. I think your stains are just fine to way you have them. Great work.

                Wonderfully done, Rich! That would make a beautiful broach pin.

                  Beautiful work again. I need to carve a lovespoon for my daughter's wedding, coming up soon and her favourite flower is cherry blossom. So I had been hesitatingly thinking of including a cherry branch with blossoms carved from a piece of cherry timber. Your work has inspired me to have a try. Good job with the colouring too, a very attractive piece.

                  Thank you for showing it. Like many others I always keep an eye out for your showings, always a joy to see.

                    Ever the great carving from a master carver. You are unparralelled in the world of miniature carvings. It is obviously your jewelery background that gives you the edge where such small pieces are involved, but where or how do you come up with the ideas? All that you do, carving, staining, colouring etc... is just superb and this one is no exception. Well done Rich.
