Carving for Furniture

Low Relief Carving Techniques

Low relief Carving for furniture, also known as Flemish or Liège style was a very popular from 16th to 19th century in Belgium-Franch culture. It also moved to England and was incorporated by Great Furniture makers such as Thomas Chippendale.

In this class, we will discover the beauty and richness of low relief carving.   Low relief carving makes something look very 3d even if it only 1/8” (3mm) deep!

You don’t have to any experience for this class, but if you do Alexander will create some challenges for you!    You will cover a lot of ground, exploring both techniques and processes.  The majority of time will be spent actually carving under expert guidance.

Here are some of the areas – ok, “Laws” you’ll work on – it is much different from normal woodcarving:

  • The Law of Space – How to emphasize parts of a Design – “The Big Idea” position in Space
  • The Law of Main Movement – How to be “on the same page” with Human Brain. Baroque diagonal vs Sinister diagonal in Artistic Design.
  • The Law of Armature- How to Structure over all Design and be “Kosher” (clean) in it.
  • The Law of Golden Ratio – How to implement Fibonacci Sequence – the Art Secret for Pleasing Human eye
  • The Law of Arabesque – How to implement Natural Flowing Movements in Design
  • The Law of Rhythm in Design –  How to apply what is known to Music world to Design for Wood Carving.

Sharpening
