‘Big Dragon Lovespoon’

Big Dragon Lovespoon finished. The lovespoon is carved from a single piece of American curly cherry, finished with a thin sealing layer of polyurethane, accented with burnt sienna and ivory black artists oils wash and finally polished with hard wax.
The lovespoon features chainlinks, a simple Celtic knot strapwork heart and a main feature dragon amid floral and plant elements. On the back is a more stylised continuation of the floral, plant and Celtic-knot-heart surround a central heart with an inscription rendered by black ink on pyrography engraving.

Re: ‘Big Dragon Lovespoon’

I have started to explore woodcarving as onother means of decorating my woodturning as well as using paints and other ideas, hence the reason for joining here. Anyway I wonder off why I posted here. This is one fantastc piece of carving with plenty of thought going into the design as well as the way it is carved to give the feeling of depth with such a thin piece of wood
