I introduce to you, “Slokey” the Elf Wizard. “Slokey” is a very content soul. He loves life and is the most positive spirit. “Slokey” is the kind of Wizard that you would love to sit and spend an eveining with. He can tell some enchanting tales and loves to share his Wizdom with any who have an ear. He loves being a Wizard and passing on his ways. He seems to see right through a person and knows their lot and how they might be comforted if that is what is needed.”Slokey” can cheer a person up with just the twinkle of his eyes. He is an enchanted soul! :)




I have flattened the back so that he hangs on the wall and I have carved a notch in the back for hanging. He is signed Wiz on the back as well.

He measures 10 1/4” tall x 3 1/2” wide x 3 1/4” deep.

Very good carving; I like “Slokey” real contentment is often hard to find in a lot of the people world today. I am glad “Slokey” has it to cheer others along the way.

well this merry band of wizards you have created are quite the lively bunch and very tricky…yep ole slotkey had a plan up his sleeve, and i fell for it, the next thing i knew was i was enthralled with story after story and the next thing i knew i was surrounded by this band of wizards, and my eyes were red and weary by the time i wandered out of the ole barn full of your wiley wizards, and my gut hurt from laughing so much..and slotkey, he was the leader of the bunch…ive fast made friends with your merry ole wizards, and they all appreciate being made by your wonderful crafting hands…

Besides character lines on his face, there are colours also which amaize me more, which also express contrasts and bring up character.

You have a style all your own. Very nice work.
