Hello,

 

this is a snail of grenadill. The black and white wood is carved in one piece as a snail on a piece of barc. The snails house is of cowhorn, the dewdrops of moonstone. The great carver Kodo used moonstones inlaid in ivory. I really like this stone and will use two cabochons as eyes for a Gollum netsuke.

 

Ko gave me some interesting woods, there will come some more.post-1743-1261770634.jpgpost-1743-1261770592.jpg

 

The mushroom is of boxwood with a snail. A little laquer behind the snail to show its "way"

The first is an okimono the second a netsuke

Hello Brad, these carvings are not made by me as you might think.

They where made by Hako, a German carver. I only gave him the wood.

 

I had a look at your website, very nice!
