My work so far....

Welcome aboard! I find it interesting, how the chip carving describes positive and negative spaces, sometimes in such a way that there seems to be more relief to the carving than just the chips removed.

 

Here are some questions for you: What sort of tools do you use? Do you have photos of them? Do you build the boxes? How do you lay out your concept before carving? It would be great if you put up a new topic in the tools and materials when answering these questions. Thanks for introducing yourself.

Natasha - Thanks for the great comments!!

 

Doug - they are not of any origin. Our designs stem off of 5 basic design (pinwheel, diamond, flower, vine and snowflake) The fan is the one you might think is ethnic, but it was just Russ (our fearless teacher) messing with the gouges to use flowers. Was a cool one and I will be using it often in my works.

 

Janel - headed over to the other forum to post more for you and the group on our techniques.
