The manta tail tree

Found a large part of a Casaurina equisetifolia tree that was blown down in a storm. I got there in time to get some small branches that I prefer to use for mantaray tails because they bend quite a bit before they break. My daughters have always known this type of tree as "the manta tail tree." –Bill

Flashin' Dreads Progress: Part 5


Above, you can see the finished piece sanded and waiting to be oiled. Below, look at how the oil enhances the natural colour and grain of the white cedar!

Sideview of Flashin' Dreads mounted on the wall. At the bottom, there are dowels to ensure the piece hangs straight. 

Each Munn Original is signed and numbered by the artist.

Flashin' Dreads Progress: Part 3

Here are more progress photos following the piece Flashin' Dreads.

"This happened to show me I need to pay closer attention!" says Bill.
A coarse carving burr at 35,000 RPM can quickly do some damage!

Using the rule of thirds, Bill has drawn a guide to detail the face.

Getting ready to open the eyes!

Connect with Munn Originals on social media

Hi everybody, Sarah Munn here! I write this blog on my dad, Bill's, behalf. He's the Munn behind Munn Originals, and the sculptor who creates all these beautiful pieces.
We'd love for you to connect with us on social media and would really appreciate your support in sharing Bill's work with anyone who has a tie to galleries or others in the art/sculpture world or anyone who might be interested in buying a piece.

We'd love to see you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+.

Thanks for your time!
