Whimsical Wood Carving Fish Art Christmas Gift for Dad on etsy carved by Gary Burns the treewiz, handmade woodworking. I named him "Jazz". He is a very snazy Aquaknot. He is very charming and is really into style. He is always very well groomed. The ladies are eyeing him wherever he goes. He's got great teeth because he takes very good care of them. He's a true fashion statement to be sure. He measures 5 1/2" wide x 4 3/8" tall x 1 1/2" thick.

This piece is flat on the back so it can hang on the wall. I have carved a notch in the back for hanging and Signed it Wiz as well.

He is carved out of an old growth pine knot. A pine knot is what a branch does when it goes into the trunk of a pine tree. The tree dies, rots and falls over, and the trunk eventually rots away leaving the knot. Very few of these are good to carve as the sun bakes them and eventually the critters eat them. It is my favorite wood to carve.

The pine knots do change color over time. Some change quickly and some change slowly. They go from a light yellow to an orange color, I am assuming from the UV light. Some are deeper orange than others. This is just a heads up as the longer I have them after making them, the more different the color is from the photo. It is too much to try and take pictures and change them as the piece changes. The orange color is a much warmer color than the yellow. I like it just as well.

Full of fun and love, AquaKnotz link our seemingly real world with the Realm of Fantasy. Love and Understanding is all they know. These enlightened creatures accept everything as perfect and give our world Hope and The Way to a wondrous future.

Aquaknots love to be around their own kind, so watch out. If you get one, you may have to get more to make up a herd.

These guys are very collectible.
One would make a wonderful gift for any household.
