Wood Carved Sculptures & Figurines
All figures are carved from wood.
I am often asked, “Why wood?” Wood is warm, familiar, organic and ultimately alive. Perfect for conducting memories. Something to touch…not impersonal as plastic (a chemical formula), or cold to the touch as metal. There is always something below the surface of a piece of wood. Grain is individual, and yet marks every species distinctively. Our eyes see shape, but we also see the grain. Grain is a life lived. It a surface with a past. Every piece is the result of a collaboration. The life of the wood, and the shape the sculptor gives it. It is a unique connection between artist and medium, past and present, something crafted, yet something living.
