Wood carving

I fell in love with wood carving and the constant interaction it presents for the sculptor during the two years I spent at the Art Students League enrolled in Lorrie Goulet's wood carving class. Later, during two consecutive summers in Safed Israel, I experienced the joy of carving thousand year old Olive wood - the most difficult wood to carve and the one most laden with surprises!
