Amazing Artisan- Livio de Marchi

This week's Amazing Artisan is another Italian, Livio de Marchi. Mr. de Marchi creates incredible sculptures in many different media, but my favorites of his work are his sculptures in wood. He creates detailed carvings of everyday items. His working carvings of cars are so fun to see. Mr. de Marchi also created a complete wooden carved house. The detail he put into every piece is astounding. You can see more of his art at his web site, www.liviodemarchi.com.

I was excited to find a few videos of his art on the Internet. One especially good YouTube video does not allow embedding into other sites. The URL for that video is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOdofbQ9VZs&feature=fvw. Below are a couple of videos that I can put on this blog. Have fun watching them. You will be amazed.

When you find a video on YouTube you want in your blog post, copy and paste the code in the "embed" box (found on the side of the video under the video info) into your blog post. That should do it.
