This was my first group carving and came about due to a complete lack of inspiration. I decided I would tidy the garage and carve the first bit of carvable wood I came across. If I failed to find anything, at least I would end up with a tidier garage. The wood I found was rotten, and the good wood so thin that I thought of making it into a lamp shade. This led to me thinking about people round a bonfire when all you see is their black shape against the fire light.
