This is brief introduction to "Carving a Lion Head." When I have a break between classes and commissions, I try to get caught up on your requests and I know a lot of you will be excited about this lesson. This three episode lesson is based on a casting of a piece created by a brilliant and versatile artisan, my late father-in-law, David May.
