In the world of art, masterpieces are created to convey the message and idea of an artist. In the literature, authors write books, novels and stories. In painting, painters create portraits, sketches, depictions and other visual renderings. By just reading or looking at their artwork, you can get an idea of their characteristics and opinions. This is also true when we talk about the art of carving. The figure and appearance of the wood sculpture is based on the creator's personalities and beliefs.
Wood carving or sculpting is not just a simple thing to do. It requires special skills. These skills can be taught professionally by participating in educational lessons or by informally transferring knowledge from your mentors, colleagues or elders. In a family, if a father has talent in wood sculpture, there is a great possibility that one of his sons will also be a good sculptor some day. Occasionally, exposure to a particular task such as carving can provide room for acquiring the skills naturally. This means that even an ordinary individual or you can be an expert on wood sculpture.
There are several ways in which to form an image. You can use a paper model or a carving machine. These two are used by some woodworking manufacturers for business purposes, especially if they do not have skilled woodcutters. But as you may know, these artificial carvings have limitations and cannot be regarded as pieces of artwork in the strict sense. Real wood sculpture experts do the task manually using basic tools such as a sharp chisel and a small hammer. The hammer is used to help the sculptor in chisel. This type of carving takes a long time and attention. Of course, concentration is a must to create a masterpiece. No wonder, handmade carvings are costly.
The choice of wood materials to be used is also very important. Normally hard wood is not an option to make this piece of art. It requires soft wood to avoid the possibility of having cracks in the chisel all the way to achieve this three-dimensional craftsmanship flawlessly. Anyway, there are several resources of good wood material that you can choose to have an incredible piece of wood sculpture.
This form of sculpture has an unlimited selection of subjects to work with. You can actually do everything under the sun as a starting point for your motifs, depending on your motives. Popular are birds and animals. Eagles and horses are two of the most famous models. I am sure you have already seen these types of wood in different sizes. You can also apply your carving skills to the doors. With artistic design, the main entrance of your home will surely look so elegant. How about carving on pillars? Well, it would be nicer for the naked eyes if the pillars have magnificent patterns. But it would mean a lot of physical effort and time. Expect a hundred drops of sweat before you can finally accomplish this task.
While it is true that wood carvings can be a good time displacement, no innovative wood sculpture could be found anywhere. Since carving itself is an art, those who are part of it must be so imaginative and need superfluous ideas to create distinctive patterns. Every figure that is to be chiseled into life through pieces of wood would mean achievement for its creator. His artwork actually spells the craft within him. Isn't it good to see a product of nature that imitates nature itself through a creative mind and artistic hands? Appreciate the beauty of nature. Appreciate some wood carving.
