Swimming Sculpture / carved from one piece of basswood wood
By extraordinary sculptor/wood carver and
distinguished philosophy professor Stefanie Rocknak
asylum art- Creating highly detailed sculptures, with realistic fluid shapes and organic contours, out of wood is a feat in itself, but when you create each individual work out of one single piece of wood you’ve got some serious wood carving skills!
Stefanie Rocknak is one of these extremely talented wood carvers, and the beauty of her single block sculpture is not just in the execution, but the elegant simplicity and retention of the basswood’s natural grain pattern as well.
