Phoenix Circle by TalyrasMirror Phoenix Circle by TalyrasMirror
This is an oldie, but a goodie. I carved this in 1989. I sold it at a Science Fiction Convention for a ridiculously small ammount. I still love it, and probably always will.

Cartoon: Nancy Janda drew the Phoenix, which was used with her permission. I drew the flame circle around him.
Plate: Walnut Hollow Farms.
Finish: Colored tung oil.
Date: 1989

At first glance, I actually thought this was the gold coins the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers used during the Ninja Rangers arc. O_O Nicely done!

'89 eh? That thing is as old as I am! I'm still a whippersnapper it seems. But this is some very nice work. I wish I could get this level of detail.

I don't mind at all, I'm tickled. Just do me a favor, and any time you actually write about any of my carvings which are collaborations, make sure you give my friends credit, too. I carved the image, and drew all the flames, but Nancy Janda drew the phoenix.

Thanks!

The phoenix is one of my favorites. I am glad you like him. I have done others, I should post them for you. But I never get around to photographing them until they sell, so everything is old. I feel weird only posting old stuff. And I never finish new stuff until just before a show. Catch 22.

I'll post more anyway.
