|KAPOW 2020 Week 25||Wood Carving||December 20, 2020|
|KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week|
Redelm Swirlclops started off ‘life’ as a cutoff from last week’s Leopard Nightstand. I had a vision of an infinity swirl/cyclops face coming out of a body and attempted to carve the face from the block. Ultimately, I did not get as much relief in the swirl as intended (the red elm wood was very, very hard and difficult to carve!), but it does make an interesting effect.
Height = 5 inches
I am not the most thorough sander….and the the pictures do highlight the imperfections. It looks a lot more sanded in polished (sanded) in person.
I have an idea for a Swirlclops version two….stayed tuned…..
