My good friends know that I am always looking for an interesting piece of wood to carve into. One favourite place of mine to source different woods is in my neighbourhood. People cut down beautiful trees for a variety of reasons and so many are kind enough to let me take the scraps away for them. This plum wood came from a close friend of mine, both a great inspiration.
