Live, Love, Laugh
Created by: Christine Taylor (Secretary)
Wood used: SheoakArbortech tools used: Power Chisel
|Christine's piece and message was inspired by Vicky Galbraith's attitude to life|
This was Peter's first time using the TURBOPlane and he said that "the TURBOPlane allowed me to express my creative desires in a way that gave me the freedom to explore different techniques, textures and shapes which were previously difficult to achieve. Whilst the convex of this piece invokes the observer to experience texture, shadow, form in contrast, the concave face offers the subtle qualities of colour and grain patterns. So it is with this sculpture I have looked at opposing surfaces, allowing a deeper appreciation of my creative process, the wonders of natural wood and the great tools to carve it with.
