hi everybody :-)

 

i was lurking in this wonderful forum for quite a while, and never dared to appear, as i am still very new to the world of carving. but now i decided its time to jump into the adventure ...

coming from a scientific background, i started carving exactely 2 years ago. i am self learner, and first with a few pieces carved in soap, then a few month carving soapstone, and then i made step towards hard stones. i carved lapislazuli, jade, various sorts of pebbles, and now mainly agate, and carneol. i still feel unsure, about showing my work here, as i admired so very beautiful carvings here, and mine are still showing beginners troubles...

 

i selected a few of my more recent works to introduce myself. all of these are intended as jewelery, mainly necklaces-pendants, or brooches. the stones are agate, carneol, and jade (nephrite).

 

i look forward to learn, and exchange experiences :-)

Hello!

 

You've got a lot of variety there :) The sun shining through the red piece is beautiful- I like its design. Your hedgehog avatar is a nice piece of work too. I wish we had those creatures over here in N. America. :)

thanks for warm welcome !

 

"hedgehog = igel" in deutsch ... yes, hedgehog is nice, and is carved from pebble i found on walk. the translucent red, is carneol. i wish i could get better hold to these wonderful stones. in this case the stone, with its color pattern told me the design, so to say. i not wanted disturb beauty, but emphasis ...

 

please feel free to ask anything about stonecarving, i would be glad to tell my way of doing things (though i dont know if that is how other people do, but it works for me)

 

and, yes, i have more pictures of my work, will show them soon.

 

thanks again for welcoming me so friendly :-)
