Revisiting the Pods.

   Earlier this year I carved several types of Stenocarpus pods for a little book that I was making.
          Each pod is separate, so can be combined to make different images of clusters of pods.
 This is a page from the book using 3 of the carved pod blocks. The paper in the book was coloured using a solution of mud, which gave this lovely ochre colour.
 Here are the 3 blocks that I used to make the more elongated type of pods seen in the image above.
You might wonder why I am reposting these pictures from January this year, but I am about to use the pods blocks again, however first I need to carve the leaves which will be reasonably simple, but the gorgeous red flowers are another level of difficulty! Watch this space!
