The Windmill

This is not just a windmill, it is THE Windmill. It has a very deep and personal meaning for me and reminds me of moments I will never forget. It is built together with someone very dear to me. It is made out of toothpicks, bamboo stics and japanese paper. Its actually spinning in the wind and had tiny metal bearings to make it turn very smooth and at the lightest flow of air. It was _extreamly_ sensitive to any air flow. Sadly this is an other creation that completely vanished, like 90% of everything I ever built.. but the memory and the pictures remain forever.

    Carved Egg 2

    This is the one and only attempt to carve a normal chicken egg. They are a nightmare to handle, the shell breaks even untouched, just moments after you drill it. I did it more like a personal ambition to prove myself that I can do it, but the material is totally unfair. I would challenge any professional carving artist to do such a thing, in this type of egg, untreated with any chemicals. Sadly this one broke all by itself a couple of days after I made this picture.

      Dark Lord

      Carved out of something, not sure what it was exactly. Kind of dirty because its old and I forgot it in a corner of the room many years. I think i did it in high-school or so.

        Chalk Chain

        This is back from the time when i was carving in normal school chalk..yeah thats right, this is a totally mobile chain made out of one single piece of normal sized piece of chalk. I used a needle to carve it.

          Carved Ostrich Egg

          This is my second attempt to carve an egg. The first attempt was a disaster, but this one came out quite nice. Sadly i don’t have the right tools needed for the ultra fine details, but one day I’ll get them. Carving ostrich eggs is so much different than carving chicken eggs. They have a density similar to bone. An egg breaks very easy from inside out but is quite resistant if you press the drill from above. Its hard to say if this one is solid or not, i guess i will find out when it will break :D

          Tool used: Diamond drill at 20.000rpm (400.000rpm needed, but its way too expensive)
