Flint Edward Sculpting - Dolphins

More of Flint Edward's work below.

Dolphins

Location: Perth Motor Lodge Flag, WA

Inspiration for sculpture: 
The shape of the timber inspired Flint to create dolphins. Still with the animals theme, Flint decided to carve the dolphins as they are the animals of the world and everyone loves dolphins!

Tools Used: Arbortech Mini-Grinder, Power Chisel and sanding discs.

Process: 
For the dolphin carvings, it was the same process as that of the wedgetail eagle. 
  1. Debarking
  2. Chainsaw work - This step took a whole to talk the bulk of the wood out and working out the proportions. The time for this process really depends on what project it is so therefore, timing varies. The main chainsaw work here is to take the main bulk of the timber away.
  3. Proportions - When Flint carves out the proportions he is careful to not add too much definition so he has room to move with proportions if needed. Once he is happy with the proportions he works on the definition and hard cuts. Once it is down to this stage he will then look at the finer details and works from here.
Completion time: One and a half weeks.

Stay tuned for more work from Flint!
