THIS IS THE FIRST PAYMENT AS THIS CARVING IS ON LAYAWAY. Original Ooak Wood Carving that would make a wonderful Wood Anniversary or Wedding Gift carved out of one piece of wood. I'm calling it "Hangin' with Bird ". Bear and Bird are the best of friends. They enjoy a wonderful relationship, sharing the woodland goings on. The setting is a wonderful ravine with a large tree dominating the scene. I love these bear and bird scenes. It's like something is going on that I want to be a part of. "Hangin' with Bird" measures 15 1/4" tall x 12 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" thick.

There is some cracking that happened while the piece was drying. The wood is very dry and I guarantee that it won't crack anymore. I just want to give a heads up. I don't feel that the cracks take away from the carving. The cracks are glued and filled. The piece of wood was so kool that I couldn't pass it up. It has a beautiful natural edge and very nice grain.

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.

It's carved out of Big Leaf Maple Burl. It's really a burly piece with lots of figure to the grain. The grain is truly mesmerizing. 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.

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.

Shipping is included in all of my work.
