This is a wood sculpture that is by order.

" Surveying Hawk" by Jason Tennant

This sculpture is carved out of Hemlock, with bookmatched
wood grain exposed through the paint to mimic patterns in plumage.
I invented this technique. This bird has a 60” wingspan.

The talons and beak tip are forged steel, and it has glass eyes.

This sculpture is designed to be mounted at least 7' high.
An excellent mantelpiece for a rustic interior. It is bracketed to be wall mounted.

Artist Statement

The theme of my work represents characteristics of plants and animals native to the Northeast woodlands.

These works are carved from solid or joined domestic wood, as well as appropriated remnants of vintage American Chestnut that I have foraged. Some pieces incorporate forged steel , glass and epoxy.

The compositions are in the form of masks, figurative, and composites that evolve out of unique pieces of vintage American Chestnut.

I use both additive and subtractive methods of painting the wood surface to expose some of the woodgrain that mimics patterns of fur and plumage.

The source of my inspiration is a small primitive cabin that I immerse myself from time to time.

I have been sculpting and painting since I was a boy. I have an MFA from SUNY Buffalo, and have taught art at the secondary and post-secondary levels. My work is in various public and private collections, including a few large scale installations
