Weidmann Swan Cradle
A personal project that took 6 months in the making, Weidman's hand-carved swan cradle is a true heirloom for future Weidmann generations. See the whole process unfold on Instagram by browsing the hashtag #WeidmannSwan to see the concept sketch to the final step.

Cradle is carved from basswood and finished with a light white stain so as to show the subtle wood grain. The beak is gilded in gold and the surrounding waters are painted to reflect a life-like pond on which this swan swims.
