One of the exciting projects John and I are working on is a book on carving with Mary May, one of our favorite teachers and carvers.
Mary has written up a nice description of how the book came about on her blog here. She is already hard at work on the book and we are trying to keep up with her.
This book will specialize in carving the acanthus leaf. That might seem like a narrow subject, but we think you’ll be surprised how far the humble plant’s tendrils reach throughout the carving craft.
If you want to get started now, Mary runs an excellent and well-priced online school. Details on her school are here. And be sure to subscribe to her blog if you’d like updates on her book.
