Here they are in progress. All six pieces are carved from Basswood. The pieces are pinned and glued together. Far Guy does the pinning and gluing. I put a layer of gesso on them and then paint them.
Each one looks a bit different.
The result is the artist interpretation of what the Lady’s Slipper would look like if it were made from wood. Each ornament takes between three and four hours to make. I have a limited number of them for sale. Check out Far Sides Attic and Woodshed Carvings For Sale under the blog header. We made 78 to send to friends and family and I have them ready to mail and or deliver.
