If a shepherd carved a face into the wood, the spirit would be released, and good luck would be bestowed upon the carver. Award-winning carver Rick Jensen—with the help of carver/photographer Jack A. Williams—will help you release the inner spirit from tree bark in this instructional book. The natural beauty found in a piece of weathered cottonwood bark provides inspiration and direction to create something new and original each time! Inside Illustrated Guide to Carving Tree Bark, you'll learn the specialized technique of carving figures in tree bark. You'll find step-by-step instructions on carving a whimsical house and a tree, plus detailed advice on painting and finishing your carvings.
