Alex Carmona – Woodcarver
Creating detailed relief prints – in wood
Alex Carmona is a recognised master of relief printing who creates hand carved woodblock prints. His creations are primarily associated with incredible detail, skilled craftsmanship and impressive size.
In his brief career as an artist, he's achieved enormous success thanks to his work with some of the world's biggest names in music and the automotive industry, to name but two. And of course, he needs the best hand tools money can buy if he's to be able to create his enormously detailed carvings. And in turn, these deserve the best sharpening system – Tormek T-8 Original.
Alex tells us more about his craft and how he goes about achieving such outstanding levels of detail.
Sharpening a tool is an art of itself. But using the Tormek machine made it so much easier.
