Deadwood creation

Here is a selection of the deadwood working sometimes called carving but I rarely carve, I create by stripping, burning and blasting. I do use Dremels and Makita to remove bulk but the majority of the work is done slowly by hand. It’s important to me that the work I do is indistinguishable from the natural deadwood created by nature. Every one of these photos has some deadwood created by me contained in the image. Most of the trees are Taxus (Yew), there are some softwood trees such as Hawthorn but that’s usually done to hollow trees to give the appearance of age. You can find more deadwood working HERE and HERE
