TIP: "The Prince" Pattern

Written by Wayne Barton


This plaque entitled “The Prince” is carved in butternut 18″x12″x1″. It was used as the cover of Wayne’s third book, “New and Traditional Styles of Chip Carving”, which introduces the concept of positive imaging.

This particular piece intertwines geometric shapes creating circles, ovals and triangles that are filled with contrasting, free flowing foliage, some stylized, some natural. It is Wayne’s rendering of one of his daughter’s favorite childhood stories, “The Frog Prince”.
