“Time Keeps On Slipping”

16” tall, 2 1/2” wide, 2 1/2” thick

This is a wall-hanging wood carving. I have signed and dated the back. I include a certificate with all of my Wood Spirit Carvings that tells a bit about me and my process.

contact me for international shipping.

I made this carving using several different tools. I began shaping with a small chainsaw. Next, I used smaller carbide burrs, knives, and sandpaper to complete the carving. I sealed this piece with a spray coat of polyurethane. I used just a tad bit of oil paint to help bring this carving to life. It’s a lot of fun to see the face come to life right in front of my eyes.

I created this face in a Pine knot. Pine knots are sort of like the forest’s driftwood. Any place a branch meets the base of a Pine tree, a knot is formed. When the tree finally dies and decays back into the earth, the pitch-filled, resilient knots are all that remain. It is said that there are spirits that reside within the knots, that allow them to remain in tact for so long. My job is to release the spirits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I sometimes take custom orders :) Contact me and we can discuss the specifics.

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.

I am also happy to make custom chainsaw carvings of about any animal or object you'd like.

I know that, as a customer, you expect a certain level of control over the custom process and I, as an artist, expect a certain level of freedom. When we are able to meet in the middle, beautiful things can happen :)

Don't be afraid to message me :) Thanks so much!

Care instructions

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.
