Hands at Work

These images are from a master wood carver.
He teaches his craft to anyone willing to learn.
It seems creating works of art using your hands is becoming a lost art in this day of technology.

Wonderful collection of images, Linda! This person is obviously very talented and you've done so well showing off his work! It's true that not nearly as many people take the time anymore to create beautiful handiwork like this.

I like how you've captured some of the process this artist uses to create his sculptures and how some of the art pieces are at different stages of competion. Very time consuming I'm sure.

Excellent post. I would own a house full of these things if they didn't charge an arm and a leg! Ha.

How lovely. I'm going to join a sculpture class in January but that will be clay.
