The Art Fly

“Currents” detail

Wood frame detail

This is a detail section of the mirror frame that I spoke about in Sept. 22 “Woodcraft” post. The wide frame is filled with wavy, compound curves of natural woods: walnut, cherry, mahogany and poplar that are inter-woven. I was interested in fashioning shapely pieces (some very intricate) with the intent of creating a mirror-art piece.

While sanding each sculpted piece, after shaping it first on the band saw, then scribing the next piece, shaping it, sanding…the process becomes totally spontaneous that it simply flows.

I thoroughly enjoy working in my chosen mediums: paint, silverpoint, and wood. Please see the Sept. 22 post to see that intricate piece of cherry in its final resting place here.
