Tree Wood Carving Christmas Gift Wall Art on Etsy, Log Cabin Decor carved by Gary Burns theTreewiz, Handmade Woodworking. It is carved out of one piece of wood. I'm calling it "Dry Creek Ravine". I love these dry creek scenes. They remind me of so many hikes I have been on over the years. So many wonderful sights. The warm embrace of the Woods. The change of lighting and the intimacy of the Deep Forest intrigues me.

"Dry Creek Ravine" measures 15 3/4" tall x 11 1/2" wide and 1 1/8" thick.

It's carved out of Big Leaf Maple Burl. It's really a burly piece with lots of figure to the grain mixed with curly and wavy grain. The grain is truly mesmerizing. I love the mix. This piece has a few blemishes from beetle larva. It is a completely stable piece of wood. I just wanted to point this out. It's nothing that bothers me. A burl is usually caused by a trees reaction to an aggro-bacteria. It starts sending out a huge number of buds showing birds eye grain through out the burl. It is very unusual and is very interesting to look at.

The technique I use is called Pierced Relief. It is carved out of one piece of wood and nothing is added. I have been carving since 1971 and a tree was the first carving I did. I have always been stimulated to carve a resemblance of a tree out of a tree. My technique has evolved over all of these years to what you see here. I keep seeing ways to make things more life like. And I love a piece to look like it is in the middle of a story that each observer can make up. Sometimes a different story each time we look at it and sometimes the same one. I love giving a piece the feeling of action. Sometimes tranquil and sometimes playful. I love it all.

I am a self taught carver. I love evolving and observing the changes that go on with my work many times mimicking my own changes.
