This is a wood carving that hangs on the wall. This is a very unique sculpture that was hand carved by me, Josh.
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.
"Content to Vent"... 16 1/4" tall, 8" wide, 1 3/4" thick..
This is a wall-hanging wood carving. I signed and dated the back. I include a certificate telling a bit about me and my process with all of my wood spirit wood carvings.
I created these sculptures in a Pine knot. Any place a branch of a Pine tree meets the base of the tree a knot is formed. When the tree falls down and rots away, the only things that remain are the pitch-filled, resilient knots. It is said that there are spirits that inhabit the knots that allow them to remain in-tact long after the rest of the tree has rotted away. Every knot is unique, stable and beautiful. My job is to release the spirits!

TO SEE ALL OF MY AVAILABLE WOOD SPIRIT WOOD CARVINGS:
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 really enjoy creating themed walking sticks such as Odin, Thor, Baron Samedi or many, many other possibilities. If you'd like a stick with bears, owls, or whatever else you might have in mind, just shoot me a message and we can discuss it.

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.
