i just took these pictures this morning and uploaded them to my computer [first time from the i phone! --- lol no difference to the camera, though i do not have to change the size, which is nice!} these are 3 pieces i started to work on yesterday ... the lighter wood is pear, the piece in the middle is silk wood which has a beautiful, nearly aquarell looking, very intriguing figure.
often in this stadium of the work one only can imagine the final result. the appearance of the pieces will be even more impressive after i have done the finish with several layers of a 100% natural wax and polished the piece.
of course there are going to be some more steps before the final sanding of the object until the surface will be soft as silk!
the burnt ridges distinguish the abut planes of the sculpture and create a three dimensional pattern in its own.
