Pounamu kārearea – Steps

pounamu falcon

This piece was a commission. I was approached by Black Stallion Photography to make a carving based on one of their photos. It fit in very well with my style but was also challenging which made it a fun, enjoyable process.

I initially made a clay model of the piece to work out the shape and to make sure I was on the same page as my client. I carved it in a deep fine grained Pounamu with inset darker Pounamu eyes.
