"Until Death do Us Part"
This is a very special piece :) This sculpture is dry, stable and is a perfect heirloom that will last for generations.
The front and the back of this carving are quite different. This carving can represent the lifelong love of this couple. It can also represent the many sides to every person's being. This sculpture will look really amazing with a mirror behind it, so you are able to see the front and back at the same time. Placing this piece on a turntable also adds a really cool effect :)
This sculpture measures 16" tall, 17" wide and 10" deep. It weighs around 11 pounds.
SHIPPING IS FREE TO THE USA! Please contact me for international shipping.
I will sign, date and include a certificate with this piece. The certificate tells a bit about me and lists the name of the carving, along with my signature.
I used a very special drying process in order to get this wood to a stable point. It took a lot of time, money and energy to produce a block worth holding this couple.
I began this sculpture with a chainsaw and a large block of Eastern White Pine wood. I shaped the carving as far as I could with the chainsaw, then the tedious and time-consuming work began. I shaped and smoothed the features with a mini belt sander. Then, I went in and refined every part of the sculpture with a Dremel tool and various bits. Once I got the sculpture's shape to where I wanted it, I sealed it with 2 coats of urethane. Before applying the urethane, I used an airbrush to help accentuate the details of this piece. I used a special drying process to ensure that this wood carving will remain in-tact forever. This is a sculpture that can be passed down through the generations.

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.
