Work in Progress
stefanie rocknak: figurative wood sculpture
The piece pictured below is NY State hard maple, naturally dried.
|At this point, the wood was so heavy, I could not even rotate it on the bench.|
|This section was carved out using a chisel and hammer. I envision more power tools in my future, if only to pick up the pace.|
|In these two shots, you can see that I have begun to commit to the face. Establishing the position of the head will help guide me through the rest of the piece. But I have also sketched her right body-profile--I will stick fairly close to this plan throughout.|
