New Work


It's been a while since I've posted new work. I had a bout of writer's block (carver's stump?) for a few months where nothing I started seemed to please me, and the grass outside needed mowing, etc. etc. So, pushing excuses aside, I've been back to work the past few weeks. I'm not sure of the title for this piece yet- maybe just 'Metamorphosis'. I had a piece of antler who's tip always spoke 'I'm a fin' and recently, the idea congealed to create a grotesque human form emerging from it.

Excellent piece which looks quite small but beutifuly detailed. I was inrtigued by the face and then the fin was revealled. I love it.

What size is it? Regards Dave
