Happy Accidents

Written by Lu

Happy accidents can occur when carving a seal and the blade slips unintentionally or the stone chips unexpectedly. These accidents of course can’t be planned but can add an artistic irregularity to a seal. The stone and the knife may not cooperate with the artist’s intentions but the finished work is a joint effort. We can’t know how it’s going to look until it’s finished and the result may be better than we had planned.
