I carved this dragon in a double Pine knot. Pine knots are sort of like the forest’s driftwood. Any place the branch of a Pine meets the base of the tree, a knot is formed. When the tree eventually dies and decays back into the earth, all that remain are the pitch-filled, resilient knots. It is said that spirits inhabit the knots which allow them to remain in tact for so long. My job is to release the spirits.
I used various hand tools and grinders to create this piece. It is finished with thinned oils.
This is a wall-hanging carving. I include a certificate with all of my Wood Spirits. The back is notched for easy hanging, and includes the date and my signature.

My carvings can be cleaned using many different methods. A feather duster works nicely. Compressed air (duster or air compressor) also works well. If on a porch or indoors, my carvings will never need a new coat of sealer. Chainsaw carvings that are outdoors will need a fresh coat of sealer each year.
