So I forgot to add these on Friday.
Here’s a Scottish Blackface carved by Bee. What can I say apart from the fact he is a handsome beast. After a few difficult photos that just wouldn’t show up the work I think I got a few better shots. Hopefully you can see this lovely face pretty well.
That’s what I said when I walked through the door tonight and spotted this little tile on the table.
Goose is so far one of may favourites because of the textures and those feet! We really need to start thinking on how to get these oak tiles displayed to show them off to their best…so if you have any ideas please let me know.
And if you can think of any creatures who would look good in these little worlds then I will pass on your ideas to Bee.
It’s Monday. Bee didn’t do any carving at the weekend because you know weekend stuff. Today is a different story. Just Harvest Mouse has arrived to join the other two hand carved oak tiles. I don’t think the photo does this one justice at all as there is so much going on and I don’t know if the camera has picked up his tiny legs that are hanging on to the stalks. What do you think?
Two lots of luck two days in a row. Bee has been carving.
Just like yesterday I came in from work and spotted something on the table. So I picked the little oak tile up and immediately noticed the unmistakable image of mole feet, I peered a little closer to see the sweetest face snuffling out of the woodcarving.
This wood is so deep and rich everything comes alive.
What could be next?
Bee has been busy today. I got home from work and he shows me this little gem. A Little Whale is a woodcarving on re-purposed oak. This was essentially a piece an old sideboard that we found thrown out at the back of our old house. Who would thrown such beautiful wood out?
I did mention it was like a magnificent tile so fingers crossed we will get a series.
