(The last!) Creative Space: Orbit block

There's a new design that's been circling in my mind for a while. It's had a few incarnations 
to date, but I think it's now at a stage where I'm ready to show it... This is Orbit. *





It's a bit trickier than my usual block carvings... there were moments of frustration and painful 
slippages of the blade while trying to negotiate these sharp angles. It's not a 'perfect' carve 
but I like a bit of 'wonk'.



The Village Voices meme, My Creative Space, has come to an end. Created by the fabulous
Kirsty years and years ago on her blog Kootoyoo, she single-handedly facilitated the sharing 
of craft, the meeting of new friends, and the interaction of ideas. Thank you so much Kirsty!
You opened up the micro-world of Australian (and international) craft for me.

* Thanks to Enney for the name Orbit :)

  2. Wow! I think it's great. (And yes, wonk is always good as far as I'm concerned!) I feel you on the blade slippage--the carving can be harder than it looks! Those lines are so wonderfully executed. Well done!

  3. Another wonderful design. It reminds me of glass stains from a fabulous red wine.
