Book Summary:

This inspirational and informative book is designed to take the reader on a journey to develop their understanding of form, design, artistic creativity and technical knowledge in woodcarving. Seven innovative projects, which gradually increase in difficulty, introduce and build on important techniques for the reader to learn, practise and adopt. By working through the projects, the reader will become independent, enabling them to plan, design and accomplish their own ideas of form in three dimension. Each of the projects includes scale designs for the reader to use, guidance on what woods to select, a list of the necessary tools, a difficulty level rating, approximately how long it will take to complete and what skills will be learnt from making it. The reader is then taken through the carving procedure with clear step-by-step instructions on how to approach the form and details. Advice is offered on what type of finish to use, and finally the design of base onto which the sculptures can be mounted. The projects include abstract studies and real-life studies, aiding the reader in their exploration of the different art forms that can be created in the medium. Projects include:Wave, Fossil Form, Cat, Female Torso, Swan, Emperor Penguin, Humpback Whale.
