These are stunning, the paleness of the willow gives them the look of aged oriental ivory carving.
The willow is from my garden and is an ancient tree, (a good 6 to 8 feet in diameter) the wood from it is very pale and opnce dry takes an Antique Jacobean finish very well. these boys were subject to numerous applications which are then almost removed to create the aged distressed look. I will be uploading annother willow carving which has just been oiled, totaly different look and feel.
