  • Door label for Elliot

    For my little nephew Elliot (my nephew Fred's boy), I made this door label with his name and a little addition of his totem animal, the wolf, perched on a rock begging at the moon for a good meal and a nice .....louve!

    The nameplate is made of maple on a red background (his favorite color), and the moon is a thin piece of marquetry glued on an MDF, and looks like the moon and its craters.... The wolf and the rock are 2 pieces of black plastic, thin, cut with a scalpel, from a drawing found on the WEB, then glued on the wood.
    Its name is cut at scrollsaw
    Finishing with oil + wax
    I had a lot of fun varying it several times with different drawings, before this one

    Lucky little nephew.

    'touch of the human hand' can transform it into another kind of beauty that is so uniquely human.
