  1. Hi Barry! I'm always glad to see your amazing work! So many elegant beautiful work! Once I've seen your work with mother of pearl and gold inlays - will never forget! Thanks for the beauty!
  2. “Alanian & Roman” was carved from solid piece of mammoth tusk, the sculpture is 25.5 cm tall, maximum diameter is 8 cm. 378 AD, August, The Battle of Adrianople ended the defeat of the Roman legions and changed the course of History. This sculpture is a fight, one of thousands fights, between alanian and roman. Two emperors were killed in that battle.

  6. Thank You, Tom! I posted my tools and sketches of another carvings here, on this forum long ago. Search my posts and You'll find everything!
  7. Thank You very much for all compliments to my work! Tom, maybe in several years I'll do a book, who knows..... I'll remember about You!
  8. 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.......
  9. 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.

  13. Hi Dmitry! Your sculptures are amazing! Very well done!
  14. I thought it was woven.... amazing work!
  15. Fantastic work! So much power! My congratulations! Bravo!
  16. Oh, no, it was just an unlucky test, this white powder was Tsunoko, used for Maki-e, but for polishing any ivory it is absolutely empty spent time! Sand-papers are the best, I use from #220 till #2000. Thank You for your compliments!
  17. No, I forgot to do photos..... I used graver machine a bit for rough shape and such tools....
  18. I would like to add details, but if the images will be too much, I'll remove a part of them.
  19. Hello everyone! So much time I had nothing for boast! This sculpture took so much time! The subject of "Babilon" is a little bit biblical (Babilonian whores), a little bit History (cult of Goddess Ishtar and her priestess) and a lot of fantasy! So, it was carved from walrus tusk, 34 cm tall.
  20. Hi Jim, your work is always as standard of the finest!
