Some people get so into their craft or talent so much they in turn become a part of what they are making.
I was inspired to create this piece by an old elementary school friend, Tracy Williams. Tracy is a tremendous craftsman in the First Nation community here in British Columbia. Her craft of weaving hats and other clothing out of cedar bark has sparked a project of my own.
I set out to create the illusion of weaving while only using one solid block of black walnut while at the same time adding a little mystical illusion and the notion of becoming your passion.
It was quite a long and eye bending process having to carve each individual weave while trying to keep the integrity of the face.
