FRANK J. SCHERBER's Profile

About

I am a self-taught decorative decoy carver and have been carving for 20 years.
I began carving after I retired and find it relaxing, rewarding and a very enjoyable hobby.
Using mostly Tupelo wood, I enjoy creating a large variety of life sized and scaled down waterfowl, songbirds and birds of prey, many of which are mounted on beautiful bases
made from walnut. Each is dated and signed with my feather trademark.
Working with an array of tools, a rotary rasp, wood burning tool and a medium of paints and airbrush, my goal is to create pieces with a naturalistic beauty. I research the natural environment of each species, adding my special touch, bringing the carvings to life.
There are always new techniques to learn in order to advance my carving skills, which give me the satisfaction of creating pieces to be enjoyed by my customers…

My work has been shown and sold at various Artisan Festivals throughout the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I thoroughly enjoy engaging in conversation with patrons, explaining and sometimes offering demonstrations of my carving techniques to those who visit my exhibits and have come to be known as ‘Mr. Frank’ over the years.
With the help of my daughter and ‘#1 assistant,’ Gay M. Scanlon, we will add new carvings as they are created. Gay will be handling most of the shipping and convo's, since she is more computer savvy than I am.
Gay has created each carving description with detailed information, but if there are any additional questions you may have about any piece, please do not hesitate to send us a convo.
NOTE :

Thank you. ~ Mr. Frank
