“Passing the Time”... 12 1/4” tall, 3 1/2” wide, 1 3/4” thick...
This is a carving in a piece of Cottonwood bark that hangs on the wall. This is a very unique piece, and is one-of-a-kind.
I spent many, many hours creating this sculpture. I wanted him to be just right :)
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh.
This piece is completely natural. I didn't use a sealer, paint or stain. To clean this sculpture, simply blow on it, use a feather duster or use a can of keyboard cleaner. Easy peasy :)
This carving hangs on the wall. I include a hanger. Also, I sign, date and list the name of the work on the back. A certificate telling a bit about me is included with all of my wood spirit wood carvings.
SHIPPING IS INCLUDED in the price of the carving to the USA! Please contact me for international shipping.
I created this guy in a piece of Cottonwood bark. Yes, this is actually a piece of bark from a Cottonwood tree. It is a wonderful carving medium as it is quite soft to work and it is very stable.
I carve using rotary hand tools. They are sort of like the tools that a dentist uses. I have a hand piece with a whole lot of different bits that allow me to make very precise cuts. I love carving! I carve everyday for a living. It's the best job in the world! I get to bring all of the stored memories and imprints on my mind to life. When you buy from me, you are buying from an artist and his family, not a large corporation. We appreciate you :)

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.
