This style of wood carving was used by Master Wood Carver of 17th century  Grinling Gibbons.  And After Grinling Gibbons passed away, many Baroque and Rococo as well Period Style wood carvers incorporated Foliage in carved woodworking projects such as  liege style furniture as well in Architectural Details in wood.

Original work of  Floral Carving can be found in Royal Country of England at Hampton Court house.  Some people cant’t even believe that it is possible to carve with your hand and gouge such a beautiful floral design in wood.

Foliages are the most common decorative concept in ornamental wood carving history, so it is incumbent upon the decorative woodcarver to check out the unbelievable range of Foliage  shapes, their plans on branches and vines, and their connected flowers, fruits, and leaves.

Since we view describe even more readily than kind, the overview or shape need to be quickly reviewed. Appearances are identified by the general concepts of design such as balance, distribution, and proportion, which lend their qualities for an over-all pleasing representation.

Since lots of elements from nature are incredibly thin like leaves, it is hard to represent them actually in our picked by wood carver material of wood. You must ask, does the design properly illustrate the mass essential to support the elements? To make Floral Carving you should know something of the techniques of the art.

Close observation of your subject is necessary to sculpt in wood  a convincing piece, even if translated or stylised. The finest method to acquire the essence of a things is to understand all facets of it.
