That’s really cool. Love the design and the added ‘nature”.. and the background, like the current of the sea.
Very unique. I just want to touch the fish

I love apple.
I like the transition from smooth to rough.

This is fantastic! I love the texture of the fish and the water movement. Makes me want to get a bunch of chisels and start carving wood. Of course I don’t think I have the vision to do anything original

Great design. Great artistic ability to see what the wood was calling out. Make me a fish.

Very cool. It’s great you have the carving talent and use the apple for more than fire wood.

Very artistic Jiri,

Apple is great for carving, it’s very hard wood, which is good for fine detail.

It’s also great for turning. I made all new handles on my carving chisels, with Apple.
