Wood Carving Sculpture of Daniel Riccio



Direct carving is a satisfying way to develop form.

Wood has a physical presence of its own. The color texture and grain can vary with different woods and with each log.

The process of carving is very physical and tactile.
A good workout with respect for the wood.
One thing about carving.
You can't undo a cut, So best to think first and consider all of the possible choices.
