  • A Nine Bird Tesselation

    Here is another design extracted from Escher's "Metamorphose," a very long woodcut (33 frames). In this piece, a tesselation of three birds (repeated three times) is the central part, and a single example of each is suspended on wires around the central cluster. Basswood, 12" x 18" overall, painted. This was carved from the core wood of a veneered cabinet door. The birds are Redwing Blackbird (black), Blue Jay (blue) and Summer Tanager (red).

      Very nice, Phil! Do you carve all the birds separately, then put them together, or all the ones in the middle one piece of wood?

        Now that is a flock. The Jays are great in that spot, always causing a ruckus.. Thanks for the bright share on a grey day here in Oregon.

        Always hoping for a nice slice that won't need sanding!

          Claude - The center cluster of nine birds is one piece of wood.

            Interesting piece Phil, as I've come to expect from you! You do like your Escher and do very nice things from his work, but some of his stuff makes me dizzy!
