Thank You, Nicolas, very pleasantly!
Martyn, I know and am able to make eyes in different ways, there was described one of them.
My father was an architect, carving was his hobby.

At last there are the final photos of Octopus, it was colored a bit. The upper part of the octopus - Urushi lacquer and Yashabushi. The lower part of the octopus and shells were covered with an incredibly huge amount of points made with a hot needle.

Incredibly life like. Great choice of material for the subject. Congratulations.

Hi Natasha
An exceptional carving by one of the World's top five living netsukeshi and a clear insight into your work process.
How you manage to combine your artistry with everything else in your life , not to mention the twins, I'll never know!!! The word "superwoman" comes to mind!!
Thank you
Wes(Maric)

Thank You very much for your compliments dear Martyn, Alex, Luigi, Bill, Oleg and Maric, I am pleased to read! I did not think that it would be so interesting for You all to see the creation of netsuke, I'm going to do photo reports of my works, I'll think of video....
Maric, I do not think I'm super woman, I try to appreciate the time, a lot of things have to give that to find time for creative work and to be myself - sometimes it is easier said than done, then I feel like a mother octopus ...
