This blog is continued with older entries on my website's 'Latest News' page, where you can see projects and images going back to February 2009.

There's loads of images of my carvings and projects on the website, going right back to when I first started out carving. There are also, of course, a few stories. To see them or to return to the website, please click on this link

If you think that you find it hard finding a space to carve....Andrew Wodzianski's 'Self Portrait of the artist as Ishmael'


I just saw an article about this piece of performance art by Andrew Wodzianski, called 'Self portrait of the artist as Ishmael'. He sat on a replica coffin floating in a swimming pool for 36 hours to replicate the end of the novel 'Moby Dick' and also managed to produce what looks like a pretty decent carving on it in the meantime! Hats off to Mr Wodzianski for his endurance.
Obviously not a man worried about his carving tools getting rusty.






(Apparently, that's not him carrying the coffin in the picture above)

You can see more about this artwork at the site which these images came from:
