Scenic Relief Carving, Paperback / softback Book

Scenic Relief Carving Paperback / softback


Scenic relief carving is the art of bringing life and depth to a carving that is essentially two dimensional.

In the traditional carving of Germany this is an exquisite and beautiful technique, and now Georg Keilhofer, a master woodcarver, shares it with his readers and students.

Step-by-step he takes the reader through the carving of a plaque depicting a deer running through the forest.

The difficulties and challenges of relief carving and techniques for handling them are explained.

Everything is illustrated with full color photographs.

This is Georg's second book. His first, Basic Relief Carving, has met with critical and popular success.

This new book will take the reader further into the art of traditional wood-carving.
