What is carving?

For me, carving is a process of quiet discovery, except for the sound of the changing of the tools. From imagination, to luster on the wood there is something new to be learned, whether from the wood, or the subject being studied for the piece.


One might use the definitions of carving to explain what the action is, but with each subtractive motion, a new shape is revealed, until there is no more to be removed, no more to be revealed to make the subject whole.


Finding wood from the forest floor brings another dimension to your carving, finding the wood that speaks to you from its source.


I agree with your last sentences... there truly is so much to be thankful for, in every movement and every turn. We are all connected in some way, with each other and with the world around us. Thank you.
