Sculptures from Spring and Summer 2021

by Alex J. Feingold

On this page will be pictures of sculptures I made in Spring and Summer 2021.

Here are pictures of a carving made from a 2"x6"x6" block of purpleheart wood, completed on March 7, 2021. It contains a figure 8 knot on a genus 2 surface (with 2 holes).

Here are pictures of eight small ``twist" sculptures made from various kinds of wood, completed on April 25, 2021. These were all made from the core wood drilled out of wood blocks that I carved into torus knots. The four smaller pieces are about 2" tall, and the four larger ones are about 3" tall. If you look back at the kinds of wood I used recently to make torus knots, you can probably recognize the kinds of wood these were made of.

Here are pictures of two torus knots I carved from a single piece of Australian Red Coolibah Burl Cap. The burl cap was rather large and heavy, so I am cutting it into smaller pieces for carving separate sculptures. I made one into a (3,1) torus knot, and another into a (3,5) torus knot. Both are about 4.25" in diameter and 1.25" thick. A burl has very interesting grain, as well as intrusions, which show in these as dark cracks and black sections. These were both completed on July 31, 2021.

Here are pictures of a (3,5) torus knot I carved from that same piece of Australian Red Coolibah Burl Cap. It is 6.5" in diameter and 3" thick, and was completed on August 10, 2021.

Today, Aug. 21, 2021, I completed the last of my summer sculpture projects, two small ``twists" made from leftover pieces of the Australian Red Coolibah Burl. Above are pictures of the torus knots I caved from that large piece of wood, so you can see the same beautiful color and grain in these pieces. The smaller one is just 3" tall and about 1.5" in diameter at the base. Its top does not have the three points at equal height, which gives it the look of a fox face. The larger one is 4.5" tall and about 2" in diameter at the base. The top tapers to a single point, making it look like a rocket.
