You never know what inspiration you'll find when you look at every single image in a magazine.
So I started drawing.....
This tiny image of a 19th Century weather vane caught my eye in Architectural Digest.
It's exquisite, and sold for $370, 000.
Impressed? I was. Also inspired...
What if it were made by an 18th Century Korean faux'k artist?
What would THAT look like?
You can see the progression of the idea across the page.....
It's a phoenix/pheasant/rooster from the late Faux Dynasty.
I'll use the sketch to cut out the wood blank and start carving!
That is AFTER I finish this current big project.
It helps to have new work (quicker and much smaller) to look forward to making.
