Ooak Original Wood Carving I call "Bird's Ravine", a tree scene with Bird that I have carved out of a piece of Big Leaf Maple Burl. It depicts two Redwood Trees living life on the edge and in a Dry Creek Ravine. I love these ravines when I happen by while on a forest stroll. I always wonder what it's like way down in the depths of a ravine like this. It looks so cozy and cool. There's a feeling of Life's eternal evolution and change. They're truly Magic Spots to me. But so many times only the Birds and the fish really know what it's like down there.

It measures 16" tall x 8 7/8" wide x 1 1/4" thick

It's a beautiful piece of burl with Curly Grain and Birds Eyes Grain throughout the piece. A burl is usually caused by a trees reaction to an agro 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.

This piece is flat on the back and I carved a notch for hanging on the wall. I have signed it Wiz on the front.

Frequently asked questions about TreeWizWoodCarvings

All of my carvings have a lacquer finish. Dusting with a feather duster or blowing off with a compressor is all that is necessary on the carved trees, fish and carved faces. I use Orange oil on the smooth surfaces. This will perk them up. I would do it as often as you polish your furniture. Once a month would keep them looking great but is not necessary.
I will contact you as soon as I get your order. I will package it that day or the next. I take it to the Post Office the next morning. If I get an order on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday it will be in Monday mornings mail.
I use Priority United States postal service mail.
I do ship outside of the US. I need to know the carving that you are interested in and your complete shipping address. I will figure what it costs to ship to your address and make the changes to the listing so that you can make the purchase.
