A Cat on the Moon๐ŸŒœ๐Ÿˆ

Today I have made a piece that will be present in the next issue of Woodcarving Illustrated , it has been a honor to write for this important magazine!

The piece is made in linden wood and it’s very lightweight.

After whittling the piece with a Mora knife, I have added some details using the chip carving technique…

…and then I colored it with a brown mordant and I used a pencil to highlight the carvings.

This Cat on the Moon is available here in my Shop www.massogeppetto.etsy.com !๐Ÿ’š

Medusa pendant๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

Medusa is a figure from Greek mythology. Together with Steno and Euriale, she is one of the three Gorgons, daughters of the marine divinities Forco and Ceto. According to the myth the Gorgons had the power to petrify anyone who had met their gaze and, of the three, Medusa was the only one who was not immortal; in most versions it is beheaded by Perseus.

Medusa is the most famous of the three Gorgons, she is a powerful symbol, in fact Medusa means “guardian”.

I have made several types of Medusa pendant in these years of woodworking, today I present you the one I like most!

Made in linden wood, this Medusa has been hand carved using the chip carving and bas relief technique, and colored with green mordant.

You can buy it here , it could be a great present!๐ŸŽ

Drakkar!โš”

Drakkar were the typical warships used by vikings for their raids or explorations. I love the lines of the these ships, just imagine the terror that aroused the bows in the shape of dragon heads during battles! ๐Ÿฒ

If you are interested in history of viking ships there is this very valid link.

I usually make little pendants reproducing drakkar bows, sometimes customers ask for replicas , like the Oseberg ship.

This time I chose to make a free hand Drakkar bow figurine, made in linden wood. Even the decorations inside are free hand and with no historical references…just for fun, I just need to give that taste of ancient stuff๐Ÿ˜œ

The carving is made using the bas-relief and chip carving technique. For the coloring just a brown mordant and shellac. The finishing is made with boiled linseed oil.

It’s a nice result, I think with ageing it will turn in a fantastic piece; now this Drakkar bow is in the United States!๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒโค
