This is a brief introduction to "Carving a Pomegranate Branch."

I was recently presented with the opportunity to carve a historical reproduction of an ornate fireplace surround dating back to the era of colonial Charleston, SC. The design resembles pomegranate branches and looks so delicate once undercut and removed from the backer board. This is a sample I made for the client before I got the commission. I am so excited to share it with you.
