Slight adjustments to the shell sconce

January 12, 2012 MaryMay Shell wall sconce

My client wanted the shell more “scooped out” and hollow – more 3 dimensional, and wanted the scroll a little more delicate. So here is the updated shell. I hope this works for them.

I’m off to Greenville, SC tomorrow to teach another beginning carving class. It’s a full class of 12 students, and we will carve a basic relief carving of a floral design – it is mainly a class to get to understand how to use the gouges, how to sharpen them, how to work with wood grain, and how to give the appearance of 3-dimension in very shallow relief.
