Creating Sculptures with Marika: The Video

The Sculpting Process

Sculpting wood is a time-consuming and labor-intensive effort requiring imagination and discipline. This brief video gives the viewer a window to the sculptor’s arduous journey from a piece of raw wood to a finished work of art.  Join the sculptor as she creates the following sculptures:
