Default Burned Magnolia Pictures

I met Mr Shimada at a bazaar in Tokyo yesterday. He has wonderful wood burn pictures. He uses magnolia wood. We had a great time talking about wood. He darkens some of the wood in the sun. I asked if he had tried ammonia to darken the wood. The answer was no and he thought he would try it.

All of his tree pictures continue onto the back of the wood with a root scene. The first two pictures are one example. The rest are random samples he had.

He has a blog with a few other pictures you have do a bit of scrolling though 『木いほるだぁ』しまこう日*

Beautiful work. Any idea what the symbology of the flying whale is?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Shimada San certainly has some beautiful work.

Must be a very patient man......

Great work. He did an excellent job with the water. Looks so real.

I will ask Shimada-san. Right now I am guessing: you often hear parents and children looking at clouds and saying, Look at that one it looks like a whale. So it may have to do with clouds and childrens dream worlds. I asked a history teacher who is Japanese, his reply was, I dont know.
