Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: J. Christopher White's sculptures, lovingly carved from West Texas juniper, are honored in this book. White uses dead-standing or fallen West Texas juniper, which can live to be 2,000 years old and only grows in the panhandle. He uses hand tools to carve his sculptures -- each cut revealing golden-colored heartwood under the weathered gray exterior. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1565231228
Über diesen Titel:
Über den Autor: Christopher White is a truly unique combination of sculptor and poet. Through his hands, the aged and weathered woods from the canyons of his native West Texas are transformed into shining examples of grace and movement. The mood and message of each piece are then amplified and refined by a poem. While the messages are drawn from scripture and his Christian faith, the subjects are as variable as nature. His studies in Wildlife Biology at Texas Tech University (Lubbock, Texas) and five years of studying human anatomy at the National Institute of Fine Arts (San Miquel de Allende, Guanajato) in Mexico are both evidenced in his portfolio of birds, fish, mammals and moving depiction's of men, women and children. White's signature style of realism flowing into stylized forms and ultimately abstract bands of fluid twist and spins, has continually won him top honors at national and international competitions, including Best of Show at the International Woodcarver's Congress in 1994. With their exquisite craftsmanship, truly unique designs and moving poignant messages, Christopher's pieces can be found in museums and private collections worldwide.
