Grinling Gibbons

Hi Mary,

I just finished reading the "Chiseling Perfection" article you linked to in your newsletter and at the end you mentioned Grinling Gibbons as something for the future (lessons perhaps?). I thought you'd like to know that Steve Bisco, British carver and author, has a book out called "Twenty Decorative Carvings in Period Styles" and the last project is a smaller Grinling Gibbons Foliage project. Currently I'm working on the Fruit and Flower Festoon project from this book but I intend to tackle the Gibbons project next. I also subscribe to the British magazine, Wood Carving, from GMC publications (Guild of Master Craftsmen) and recommend it highly to any of your students.  Steve Bisco also is a contributing author to this magazine.
