This is a wood carving of a wood spirit. I hand carved this sculpture in a half-round log.
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh. I don't have any elves or helpers. When you buy from me, you are helping to support my family. We really appreciate it :) When you buy something from an artist, you're buying more than an object. You're buying hundreds of hours or errors and experimentation. You're buying years of frustration, and moments of pure joy. You're not buying one thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul.... a small piece of someone else's life.

This carving measures 12" tall, 8 3/4" wide at widest point and 4 3/4" thick.
This is a wall-hanging sculpture. I have attached a hanger, along with the name of the carving, the date and my signature on the back. Also included is a Certificate telling a bit about me and the carving :)
I created this sculpture in a half-round, Pine log. I dried this piece of wood, so it will remain stable and won't crack over time. I didn't use any sealer, paint or stain on this piece. It is completely natural :)
I carve using rotary hand tools (very similar to the tools of a dentist). There is a hand piece, a flexible shaft and a foot pedal, all powered by a hanging motor that assist me in bringing my visions to life. I like to use just a tad of oil paint to accentuate my cuts.
I carve everyday for a living. It's what I love :)

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.
