One of the world's most notable folk artists, Harley Refsal has been decorated by the King of Norway for his pioneering contributions to Norwegian folk art, particularly flat-plane figure carving. A Professor Emeritus of Scandinavian Folk Art, he shares his expertise with thousands of carvers in courses and presentations across North America. Harley was featured in a PBS Craft in America episode, appeared as guest woodcarver on Prairie Home Companion, and was honored as Woodcarver of the Year by Woodcarving Illustrated magazine.
In this book, Harley shows you how to carve and paint engaging folk-art caricatures in the classic Scandinavian style. Carving Flat-Plane Style Caricatures presents more than 50 imaginative figure patterns for you to carve--from lumberjacks and golfers to trolls and elves.
