I am Sean, I am a carver from Hawaii. I have officially been carving for 3 years, not counting whittling as a youngin'. I am a sculpture major an the University of Manoa, I learned more of my carving skills at a Kalai Laau class which focuses on Hawaii based carvings.
I am not much of an online person, but I see on this forum a lot of peoples work that I respect and admire and hope to exchange techniques, philosophies and passion with.
I draw most of my inspiration from textile forms. Typically I like to look in to material cultures of different sorts. Or I'll see some braid, weave, knot, netting, etc. and draw from that. Then I carve them out of antler or wood. Check out the pictures! I believe there even in the right format!
