I’m continuing with the koala story this month. They are taking quite a time and I’ve not moved on as far as I’d have liked to with them. But quality over quantity every time!
As I grind down the blocks of stone the shapes of the koalas slowly emerge, which is a strange and wonderful experience. It almost seems as if they are escaping from the confines of the stone!
Points to guide you which come to mind are:
By the next blog I will have done a lot more work on them, including making a decision on whether to finish them polished, or not. Happy carving!
On this page I intend to add monthly updates on aspects of jade carving. I also plan to invite more experienced carvers to offer a "master-class" on a particular subject of their choice. With this I hope to enthuse both the novice and the expert in this ancient and beautiful art-form/craft. And comments are welcome!
