This is a weird little item, created from a bit of walnut I had no idea how to use: I friend gave me some duck body and head blanks. As I’m not a carver, I’m still figuring out how to use these. For one duck head, however, I decided it was a nice shape for a business card holder. I made this for a colleague who transferred to a new job. As we work for NOAA’s National Ocean Service, it occurred to me that the duck head shape had a bit of an ocean wave flare to it. So that’s what I hope it evokes.
