Chip Carving Nature: An Artistic Approach

Craig Vandall Stevens

Available Now


In Craig Stevens's unique chipcarving style he creates images from nature by using carved shapes and patterns rather than outlining the subject. With a brush painter's sensitivity these carved shapes create a flow and movement that imitates the simple but graceful patterns of the natural world. The initial drawing creates the foundation of each carving. The book shares Craig's method with other carvers, taking them step-by-step through the carving process, beginning with an introduction to the tools and the wood. Every carving step for the main project is included with a clear color photograph and a concise description of the carving technique that is used. The pattterns are included as is a gallery of variations and applications.
