Details about Elements of Woodcarving: By: Chris Pye160 pages (all in color), 8-1/4'' x 10-7/8''.Design, material, and technique: these are the three key elements of woodcarving, and this wonderful book of instruction and inspiration explores these essentials in abundant, glorious detail. 10 projects take you through the entire carving process, from the initial idea to the finished work, and they illustrate a range of styles and subject matter. Carve in relief, in the round, from nature and from mythology, and with lifelike realism and abstraction. Linking them all are thought-provoking discussions of the most pressing practical questions. What are the best ways to use drawing and modeling, hold the work, cut cleanly, and find ideas? The answers emerge through the knowledge contained here, and through your own experience as you undertake a small carving of Albrecht Durer's painting Hands; form the smooth surfaces of Ikarus, and proudly complete an advanced sculpture of a lively Leaping Frog. Bonus: profiles of two of history's finest woodcarvers!
