Wooden Moose Creations' Profile
I have been wood burning since 1990. My mother is an artist and she allowed my siblings and I to explore with many different textures such as pottery, painting, drawing, woodburning, sculpting, wood carving, sewing, etc. There was never a dull day in my daily adventures as a child. My siblings chose their own avenues to express their talents while I focused on wood burning and carving. After my son was born in 2008, we acquired many wooden toys for him and my zeal for woodburning came alive again. I love to capture the beauty of nature in my work. The contrast of colors has always been appealing to me. And it is also very beneficial for children.
I use a variety of woods to make these toys unique and special. My work is hand cut, sanded, burned, carved, conditioned and sealed. I prefer the artistic expression enabled by hand-work for my creations rather than the precision of laser burning which you can find anywhere…
