    All the contours suggest a smooth, flowing power captured in the moment. Brilliant!

    I like seeing something I know I couldn't begin to do, I can't imagine the time that went into that piece I've never done any carving it would be interesting to know the process, thanks for sharing.

    Do you buy your basswood locally or do you order it and from who.
