carved by Mariya
Material: boxwood and pear wood
Measurements: netsuke 1.61"(4,1cm)
stand 2.17"(5.5cm) diameter.
Boxwood : Owing to its fine grain and iron strength it is a good wood for fine wood carving,
although this is limited by the small sizes available.
Owing to the relatively high density of the wood (it is one of the few woods that are denser than water)
boxwood is also used for high quality jewelry and parts for musical instruments.
The people say , that one gram boxwood as one gram of silver.
It does not rot, do not eat the pests.
But it is an expensive material, precisely because of these qualities.
It is also very hard and difficult for work, but then remained unchanged for centuries.
For making my work I use top quality materials, professionally prepared for work but never from felled tree alive!
This is completely original work from creating the project to its full completion, costing months of hard creative work. But the pleasure of good results is worth it!
Аll is hand carved by me, in my home by the use of various gouges and knives.
Hand carved using old-fashioned hand held bench chisels and small detail chisels and wood carving knives!
No dremels or foredoms, or computer controlled CNCs
or any other type of 'carving' machinery is used!
All they are hand carved works of art.
Sealed safe blend of beeswax and mineral oil,organic clean materials provide complete protection of the piece and its owner.
I do not use polish and additional painting at my pieces.
