by Chris Pye

This is new edition of Chris Pye’s classic guide to high and low relief carving. To read it is to be in the presence of a master teacher. Rather than proceed through a large number of projects superficially, Pye takes you through just two but treats them in tremendous depth. The book helps you start up shop, understand wood grain, and provides essential information about tools and designs. Starting with a discussion on specific tools and how to hold and use them, Pye slowly introduces the vocabulary and technique of carving techniques chapter by chapter. Each step is described in words and sketches and then illustrated with large color photographs showing the actual carving process stroke by stroke. With full-color photos, a gallery of student works and a glossary. 8" x 10 ". Color photographs, sketches. Soft cover.
