I did a carving of this little goldfish last year as a bottle stopper and got quite a few comments on it. I have carved several more since then and decided to do one as a single animal carving, as an entry in a different carving category. The cup and it’s contents were a little challenging, but I think they turned out ok? I had some rough outs made of this little guy and hope to teach a few classes on carving him. Thanks for looking!
