Commission to carve a Brown Bear

2 September, 2016 – 9:10 pm

This commission is incredibly interesting. The Brown Bear is such a beautiful creature.

The stone is from Veizeys Quarry nr Tetbury in South Gloucestershire, there are a lot of fossils and hard calcite veins running through this piece if stone which lends itself to the rugged nature of the wild animal.

I have chosen to carve the Bear eating a salmon so he has one paw up to his muzzle and the other holding the end of the fish.

They have a dog like quality in their faces and I still have a lot of work to do the first stage is to rough out the basic shape then gradually become more refined.

The carving is still very simplistic as this only represents a weeks work but you will be able to see the progress as I publish more photos.
