First Carvings

Friday, 16 April 2010

When I first attempted fruit carving I trawled through countless images online to see what I could try out. I came across this beautiful image of a fruit platter, which didn't actually have any fruit carving, but I liked it so much that I took inspiration from it.

I've found that if I create something it always looks better when I add garnish to it. So I decorated this plate and put my first fruit carving in the centre. It looks very basic, has a lot of mistakes and could have been done by an amateur...

Like me!

Eventually I think I started getting better. The same weekend I did this galia melon I made a cantaloupe rose bowl. In my opinion they are worlds apart though still not brilliant. What do you think?
