thanks to my girl friend emi.
i had a chance to attend wood carving (kikezuri) class few weeks ago.
the class was hosted by mr takimoto who is a master japanese woodcarver, he emphasized on letting wood speak for itself and it was interesting to keep my hands moving without really thinking the end result. it was a perfect way to spend a nice sunday afternoon.
here are some photos:
this is what we used to carved the wood.
master at work:)
our end result, emi's on the left and mine on the right.
here is my latest creation of a wooden brooch.
