« Part 1: Artisans of the Valley Scheduled to Attend the 2010 Philadelphia Fine Furniture Show! Part 2 of Artisans at Events, Furniture & Art Shows series Part 3: The Bench, The Art, The Wine »

This is our business and personal feelings converging into a patriotic and highly Pro-2A display at the “New Valley Forge Gun Show” – Warminster, PA June 2013.

“Right to Bear Arms Eagle” – Concept by Eric M. Saperstein of Artisans of the Valley. Artwork, design, and CNC carving, and base/clear coats by Dana Osterman of The Sign Smith. Airbrush work by Felipe Rivas of InnerCity Airbrushing.

This carving is on 18# sign foam laminated to an LDF with an assortment of primers, base coats and clear coats that result in a solid, durable, UV protected surface, color, and finish. This piece is available in a vector format and can be modified on request. The design will be available in CNC carvings, 3D printing, embroider, banners, and possibly castings. This is an example, and just the beginning, of showing off what we can do with our new 3D capabilities.

“Right to bear arms bear” & our “Flag Bearer” – Bob Eigenrauch, our Master Chainsaw Carver in white pine.

“Shiloh Prairie” – by Eric M. Saperstein featuring an 1874 Shiloh Sharps rifle in 45-70. Carving patterns are a composite of Lora S. Irish designs laid out and configured into an original panoramic buffalo prairie scene. Hand carved in poplar with a black walnut frame, burned detail, acrylic tinting, Waterlox finish.

We had fun designing the bear arms eagle – hoping we can catch that on as a theme logo for the cause.

The bear arms bear was last minute came in midnight before the show – just for fun! He sold already, gotta get another one ready.
