9781621130086: Carving in the Round: 7 Projects to Take Your First Steps in the Art

Carving in the Round takes readers on a journey to develop their understanding of form, design, artistic creativity, and technical knowledge in wood carving. Seven innovative projects, which gradually increase in difficulty, introduce and build on important techniques for the reader to learn, practice, and adopt. Each of the projects includes scale designs, guidance on what woods to select, which tools will be necessary, the difficulty level rating, approximately how long it will take to complete, and what skills will be learned from making it. Clear, step-by-step instructions explain how to approach the details and form. Advice is offered on what type of finish to use, and finally the shape, size, and design of the base onto which the sculptures will be mounted is considered.

About the Author:

Andrew Thomas’s work is an evolution of design that he has been developing over the past 24 years, ranging from the human form through to complete abstraction of subject. His avant-garde style is a unique blend of angles and curves that have flavors of Cubism and Art Deco. A qualified teacher with 17 years’ experience and a contributor to GMC’s Wood Carving magazine since 1994, Andrew has won over 20 awards for his sculptures, including 3 international gold medals. He has exhibited in over 80 exhibitions to date, and his work, which can be found in many private collections across the UK and Europe, is also hosted in 11 different galleries.
