relief carving

Here's a few pictures of a carving I did last autumn. I received a request of a wonderful company that still uses an ancient technique to create gorgeous gilded leather. 

If I could recreate their logo in a relief carving, so it could be used to make a negative mold to imprint the leather. I'm unknown to the process of making a die out of this carving but  I'm happy with the result. I'd like to thank my friend Gerry for cutting out the lettering using CNC so it became as crisp as could be.

  3. Beautiful carving as always. I would have liked to know more about what the stamp was going to be used for. Surely the figure is not an ink stamp.

    1. Catherine, you're so right, I've added text and put up the link to the artist for whom this was made saw well. He makes fabulous purses, as well as restorating furniture and wall decorations using an old technique that involves stamping leather and then decorating it in an unique way.

    2. Thank you for telling us that. Oooh how wonderful! I hope we will get to see the image you carved on the leather gilded. If they put it on a purse I hope they give you one. ;-)

    1. Thanks Jeffry! And it is true? Ham House is revealed? I understood time would be tight to get everything ready and together so that is awesome! Wish I could see it for real myself. It must have looked amazing with so many renowned and superb artist working on it. I feel humbled and proud at the same time having a piece of my hand among al those (little) gems.

      If you're going to spend another day there, have a great time. If not taking a course, I hope you find some neat treasures!

  12. Wow Deborah, that looks amazing! It's so perfect, that can't have been easy. And what an honour to be asked for something like that, it's their 'business card' after all.
