The first picture is of a Juniper vessel that I carved. This piece definately deservs it’s name “Grand Canyon”. The picture doesn’t show just how large this piece is. It is approximately 36” tall and 34” wide. It came from a Juniper tree estimated to be around 800 yrs old. I used the chainsaw like I do on all the carved pieces to carve a bulk of the material away and then grinders to do more of the finess shaping. I decided to leave some of the holes open and not fill them with turquoise.
The second picture is a Choke Cherry piece called “Happy as a Clam”. This piece was approx. 12” tall by 18” long. We put a few different stones in this piece (Sugalite, Red Corral and Turquoise) to make it more colorful. I carved a few folds and bends in this piece to add depth.
The third picture is a professional photo of “Margarita Ville”. This picture shows off the piece much better than the one I took myself. This is a Choke Cherry wood with turquoise inlayed and it sits on a piece of flagstone. Stephanie named it, because it looks like a big Margarita Glass. It would be great at a party.
The forth photo is a side profile of “Surprise Sensation”. I didn’t have this shot when I downloaded this piece a while back. This picture really shows all the folds and bends I carved on the inside. It’s my favorite.
