Serge, would you be willing to share a thread on how you achieved the rusty surface on the skull petrol can in boxwood?

For me, netsuke are not a simply object, it's a way to show what you think about the world, the life or the religion, it's a message, a cultural message. My message is coming from french culture, i can't "talk" like a japanese people.


Serge...
Your words define not only the fine spirit of a great artist as I consider you by observing your works, but above all a universal language and message that does not distinguish between countries and cultures but only the sensitivity of each artist ...
Really congratulations.

On top of being an extraordinary skilled carver, Serge is a very nice person !!
I was very happy to have dinner with you along with the others on thursday evening in Köln.

Raoux, happy to see you here. I like your carvings very much! My favorite, like Alan, the turbin type shell -it is really hard to believe it is boxwood. I thought it was a real shell at first. Thanks for sharing. Sorry I was not able to attend the Cologne convention. I know I missed a winner.

Not sure if we are getting crossed wires here.

I think the base material of the shell may be plaster, not boxwood (happy to be corrected)?

The dragon inro set is what Rob referred to as boxwood.

Serge can you confirm for us?

Hello Serge.. it was great to meet you in Cologne and to see and handle your wonderful creations. I look forward to seeing you again soon... in London perhaps?

I think there might be some language confusion in this thread regarding the various techniques employed. With this type of work it isn't particularly helpful to think of them in terms of a single material or method of manufacture.. carved boxwood or ivory.. like we might do when discussing more traditionally made netsuke. I'm sure Serge will be much better at explaining how he made these stunning works of art, but if I might make an analogy that could be helpful.. when we look at the Mona Lisa for instance, we don't imagine it as having been made from Poplar wood... even though if one were to consider the work merely in terms of volume.. it is undoubtedly more Poplar wood than paint. :)

Again wonderful to meet you in Cologne Serge and great that you've decided to join the forum.
