    English is not my native language, sorry I didn't understand your question. Did You mean the process of design? I take a walrus tusk, look how it is well for my idea, sizes, quality, color. Then I draw the outline of the tusk on a paper, to draw sketch, usually it takes a week for all details. Then I mark all important points on the tusk and begin to carve.......

    Thank You all for so wonderful compliments, they inspire me so much! Richard, I'm sorry, usually I draw a sketch for a piece what I have and try to use every millimeter, If I have a needless sawed out piece - it is a bad piece for carving, cracked or too thin, or looks as ring, nothing for work, refuse.
