A Forest of Tree Sculptures

I was asked by the Tree Love charity to carve 40 tree sculptures.     They sent me photos to copy.   I did not like the wood that had been used or the style of carving.     A sandwich of woods is always going to be tricky to carve as the grain direction may change at the glue line between different woods

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I decided to use oak blocks 10cm square and 25cm long, and designed a different carving style.      I am still not clear on how the foliage on original carving was achieved, so I went for a 3D doodle with a a 0.5 inch chisle .      My work
