“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

Photocarver creates art that can be seen and touched.  They don’t print your digital images, they mill them into wood surfaces. What looks from a distance like a two-tone picture, turns out to be a fascinating high relief – in line or dot.  Try it out for yourself.  I’ve tried it with Queen with Moko by Barry Ross Smith. We bought this from NZ Fine Prints a few years ago.  I love it – every time I walk past it in our hallway it makes me smile, and reminds why I’m not a royalist.

Photcarver’s website is easy to use.  I wanted to see what it would do with a black and white photo.  I grabbed this photo by Abdulla Alfoudry. What do you think?
