A Few New Pieces

Recommended Posts

After a few weeks of moving, I've finally set up an internet connection, and purchased a computer.

 

I haven't had the oppertunity to do much carving since I have been enrolled in college, but here are a few little pieces I have managed to create.

 

The first is a guitarfish, carved from sperm whale tooth,

The second is a commission for a young woman who wanted a leather back sea turtle with paua shell inlay on a hemp lashing, carved from cattle bone

The third is a tiny whale shark, carved from antler crown with buffalo horn inlay for eyes, and carved completely with hand tools. I could seriously benefit from learning to build gravers.

Thank you for the kind words,

 

Billy, yes I most certainly have heard of Nathan Pettigrew, what a wonderful artist. I wish I could find more images of his work, I recall he also does a lot of work in antler. In fact, I think I will seach his work when I am done here.

 

Tony, I look forward to seeing your new work and I feel like gravers could be useful but many artists seem to get by just fine without them =)
