Creating wood sculpture for me is very eventful process. It begins from idea which could be caught anywhere. Than I need to fix the idea into small plasticine, graphic, zbrush 3D or photo sketch. These ideas are very carefully stored in my head, phone, computer and workshop.
After that I take such sketches and make full size plasticine model to be familiar with all shapes. Next stage consists in finding the piece of wood to carve. Mostly I glue few pieces of wood for my sculptures and some of them composed of big quantity of pieces for getting interesting structure.
Then woodcarving starts when you take the piece of wood and create «Essense in the form». After carving there are long procedures of sanding, polishing, cleaning and covering with oil. Final stages for lamps are electricity patching and LED lamp installation.
