This is a brief introduction to "Carving an English Rose."

This 2 episode lesson is Part 6 of the "Colonial Charleston Fireplace" series. The lesson teaches how to carve an English Rose amid the twisting vines, leaves, and flowers that make up the intricate overmantle for this historical reproduction. The most fascinating aspect of this piece is the suggestion of great depth making the bloom appear fully three dimensional. The surrounding leaves are covered in the next part of this series.
