Marvelous! Im nuts about anatomical pretties, hearts especially, of course.....Ive also been going through old wood.carving zines, I think it would be so useful, you could make your own hair sticks, bowls, etc. You've inspired me, I think i'll aim for one of these. But much simpler, thats quite a work of art, im thinking a softwood hand.held non.sliceable one.... But I love this, im imagining the heartwood of this big old tree....

Oh thank you very much everyone, I always have a minor freakout before I post anything here, I'm never sure if people are going to like my stuff. My heart skips a little before I press 'post'.

 The audience that came to see the exhibition were quite a conservative bunch of traditional woodworky people that probably didn't quite understand what i was doing with it. Hence, my piece was admired, but didn't sell, so I didn't make any money to give to the botanic gardens, but I do get to keep it for myself which is totally fine by me.

I'm going to add a few process shots if anyone is interested to see how i did it.
