A tool of creation
Ed Archie NoiseCat
I use an adze
in my work. Most carvers do. I arc the adze down and towards me, running
with the grain to shape my wood.
The adze is
a close cousin of the most primitive tools known to man. Our ancient
ancestors fashioned their carving blades from stone, shell and bone.
I first saw
an adze when I was a small child in British Columbia. Some of my band-members
were carving a canoe. When I first picked-up an adze to use it, I was
already in my twenties, and it felt familiar to me.
