Bobcat

I was asked to create a bobcat design to be used as both a carving template and also to feature as a logo on ice hockey shirts.

The design (©HatchBurnCarve) was carved into a 25 x 25 cm piece of reclaimed slate. Following freehand carving, this was hand polished to a mirror-like finish and enamelled using professional gold and white monument/memorial enamels;

My design was then expertly transformed into a print by Team Xpress, based in Pickerington, Ohio.  These jerseys are now worn by the ‘Bobcats’ team that play in the Perani’s Pond Hockey League at their games in Columbus, Ohio.

Soapstone pendant

It makes a change working with softer stone and soapstone is a delight to carve!
