This is a Church organ that my uncels, father and me have carved together, on commision for the local Church. Its wery influenced by the old local plant style, and the Familys variant of the acantus style. its painted at the workshopp, sadly some of the pics are in hdr quality so i could not upload them because of the size.

Been a long time since i posted anything, been a bussy year.

For my friends at lumberjocks and those it might interrest. I was shown a big honour this year, the state appointed me second member/second leader of the woodcarvers Board/organ of education and craftmanshipp, Witch means im one of 2 sensors for all apprenticeshipps taken in woodcarving in norway, we also work on what should be in the education, and how it should be approatched practicaly at the workshopps that take Apprentices, wery inspirational work for someone that have been surrounded by woodcarving the entire life like me, and i have always loved my Craft so this is exiting.

A fun fact, afther i got appointed and i axepted on the spott, i red up on it, and found out that when you get picked by the state for this Office, you are bound by Law to Accept, i can apply for permanent realease when i turn 60 years :) So i Guess il be doing this for a vile.

I hope all i know here are well and have good days, even if i havent been mutch active lately i do follow Your posts With great interrest. :)

And some say my work is ‘Over the top” Ha, this thing is outrageous!! Amazing work Bard. The organist might make music with this thing, but you can make a chisel sing.

Another wonderful example of your family’s beautiful work Bard.
Congratulations on your appointment.
I am sure that the fine tradition of carving in Norway is now in the best of hands.
