Not long ago I could only admire the carvings, it attracted me since childhood. Although I chose another profession in my life, the love to wood never left me. This is an extraordinary art known to mankind since ancient times, it combines the power and sophistication of human labor. Wood seemed reflects the magic that animates ordinary board, making it a perfect work.
I researched a lot of processing methods and performance techniques of carving, and most interested in the ability to use modern technology in this craft, which advantage compared to manual work is the maximum production speed and product details.
And now my dream has come true - I've created my own workshop, workshop "The Tree of Life." To implement my ideas I chose oak as a strong and robust breed products from which are durable. Because of its strength oak isn't used in handmade.
For me the main thing is the result. So I use superfine tool in order to most accurately reflect all the details. This is especially noticeable in the paintings of large size.
I put my soul into my work, so sure that they not only can become exquisite decoration and talisman of your home, and perfectly suited as a gift for dear and close friends.
I invite you to take a little tour in my shop Woodenicons that is devoted to religious pieces mainly. There are also sections with wood appliques and non religious home decor that I added not long ago. I'm going to add sections with pictures, ornaments and other wood pieces in nearest time as well as expend variety of religious icons that I make.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All my staff could be inside keeping only.
Please keep in mind :
- Hold it in dry clean place.
- It is not protected from water. White patches could appear in areas which were sprinkled with water. So, absorbing water wax has the ability to become whitened. However, this partial defect is quite easy to remove - at any time after the consecration of icon is enough to put on a "whitened" areas any oil (linseed, olive) preferably with a brush, and to wipe with a soft cloth after 15-20 min.
- The carvings have very accurate details (faces of people, corners, frame ornaments) that could be damaged from hits or fall from height.
- If you wish to refresh the icon’s look you can cover it with any oil as it is describe above.
