Simplicity

Here’s a new project in progress…a hand carved inscription on an old wooden stool. Lettering designed with double pencils on paper and written quickly and arranged in a  simple block layout. It is such a joy to work in wood. The crisp crunch of a sharp chisel cutting through the grain a most satisfyimg sound.

I love the simple utilitarian nature of the stool. It just came to hand as a pleasing idea to add some calligraphy to it.

I have recently taken up my chisels again and am in the process of creating a circular hand carved alphabet. From the response I have had from social media friends, as well as the pleasure of working with wood again, I am greatly encouraged to take this work further and become much more serious about this aspect of my work.
I plan to create at least 10 pieces over the next year and exhibit here in Bangkok.
