"Happy just to be here"
At least this guy is. He started as just a practice piece, working on noses, and I liked the nose more than I did the rest of him. He's sat around while I worked on other stuff and I just picked him up the other day just to be carving. I ended up taking almost an inch off the top of his cap and almost as much off his chin, and he seems a lot happier because of the changes. I think I'll just stick him on cork, leave him natural, and use him as a bottle stopper. I like his chin and neck also; seems to add a bit, something a little different from my usual necks. The stopper part is metal and silicone, not cork, so it seals really well. Thanks for looking!
