Wood Sculptures

I began wood sculpture 30 years ago, I saw a wood sculpture of a humming bird at a small art gallery and was fascinated at the detail. My first thought was I need to learn how to do that. It took almost 3 years to learn how to make a sculpture that was similar to the one saw in the gallery. I went on to learn how to paint each piece focusing on getting the soft look of a live subject. I was the president of the local Champlain Valley Woodcarver’s Guild and taught wood carving of birds and fish for almost 10 years. I still do wood carvings and the skills I learned easily migrated into my stone sculpture.

Chickadee Clutch

Carving a cluster of baby chickadees was a challenge but I ended up having 5 birds in such a little space. I did see in my mind what I wanted but had to adjust as I went. Sculpted from a single piece of wood, they had to reveal themselves as I worked through the wood. They are sculpted from Tupelo wood, textured with a wood burning tool and painted with acrylics. They are presented in a mini wood turned bowl made my Ken Gadway "The Adirondack Woodturner" specifically for me.
Size: 3" x 3" x 3"

This sculpture is of a small cottontail bunny in his fall colors. The bunnies are frequent visitors under our bird feeders most of the year. They are very timid and serene subject. The bunny is made from Jelutong wood, sitting on leaves made of copper. The bunny is textured, wood burned, then painted with acrylics.
Size: 8" x 8" x 8"
