Beginners How to Get Started with Wood Carving This is a carving that is completed in its entirety and generally has a more 'lifelike' surface and texture. However, having said that, most caricature carvings show various tool marks but differ from whittling in their complete definition and amount of detail. A carving-in-the-round might be of any topic; it might be big, or small; it might be to scale or life size and may be painted, stained or left natural. A knife by itself cannot produce the desired results in a carving of this type. The carver will need a variety of shapes and sizes of tools. These tools may be hand-tools such as gouges, chisels, etc. or the carving may be completed using power-tools and various shapes of blades, burs, abrasive points, etc.

Immense paper cut tapestries by Tomoko Shioyasu (click for detail) Japanese artist Tomoko Shioyasu was born in Osaka in 1981 and majored in sculpture at the Kyoto City University of Arts. Her immense floor-to-ceiling tapestries are meticulously cut by hand from enormous sheets of paper using utility knives and soldering irons. Her work evokes some of nature’s most complex creations: the organic patterns of cells, the flow of water, and the forces of wind. Her latest work, “Vortex” (first two images) is currently on display as part of the show Bye Bye Kitty!!! (via hyperallergic, photos via karrie jacobs, kashya hildebrand, and scai bathhouse)

Grain & Gram — The New Gentleman's Journal / Blair Sligar, Woodworker “My name is Blair Sligar and I build furniture and sculpturefrom salvaged and local materials.” lair’s own words are concise, functional, and to the point. All things that you find in his work. Talking with Blair and seeing him among the wood and tools artfully thrown throughout his shop, somehow it all makes sense. The way he walks around his shop, you see a comfort in stride and step, and that comfort comes from his ability and the freedom he gives himself to “make whatever he wants.” Built to be used, loved, cherished, and kept, all of Blair’s pieces have an old-world sturdiness that you rarely see in today’s all to frequent buy-destroy-repurchase cycle. He and his wife have a governing rule they live by where they buy and own only what they love, no matter what the item. I started woodworking pretty crudely. I also spent a lot of time in metal working shops and a few cabinet shops. The small fine woodworking studio that works from it’s own designs is a somewhat current idea.
