Bela Weeks’ First Carving

Bela wanted to carve something — her first carving.  The faceted, five-point star is a good relief for a lesson.  It is a simple, geometric shape with givens requiring precision:  the outline, the even depth and symmetry of the centerlines of all points, and flat planes from surface to centerline.  It calls for the mallet to get the depth and careful hands to true the facets.

She was intent.  She carved an fine star and made a proud grandfather.  Mrs. Snowden, her art teacher, got the star.
