Willow Ptarmigan Feeding



“This piece is self explanatory with ptarmigan feeding in the willows. The willows are a little thicker in scale here to the birds as it would have been too difficult to carve them any thinner. It was hard enough to carve the willows this thin as the vibration from grinding can easily cause the long thin pieces of antler to break. I needed to have many support attachments on each piece to lessen the vibration stress. These willows are so delicate and took me many hours over many days to complete. I am ‘willowed out’ and will not do anymore willows for a while.”
