What happens when a two-dimensional graphic is rendered in three-dimensions? That’s the question that I’ve been exploring for the last several months. As a woodworker, carving is the most challenging (and most rewarding) branch of the craft. But I don’t care much for traditional carving forms like shells or acanthus leaves and I have come to believe that it is acceptable to apply color to wood. My experiments have been enjoyable and the results are better than I expected.
This carving is based on a motif by Charles Rennie Mackintosh; a stylized rose. This is a small piece; the carved panel measures 5″ wide X 7-1/2″ high and the frame is 9-1/2″ wide X 12″ high.
The panel is hand-carved basswood, and the colors are light-fast watercolors. The carving is first sealed with shellac then lacquered. The frame is curly maple with an aniline dye/lacquer finish.
