Amazing does not even describe this! Thx.

Didn’t hear when and where you will be here in Los Angeles. I’m leaving for the mountains Fri for a week with our camper to hang out near Yosemite. Hope we can meet up.

Very beutiful. David is a true artist. Thank you and him so much for sharing. David used the ORIGINAL power tools to sculpt this, his hands. Creative piece, creative mind. If you have the opportunity, please share other clients creative art pieces.

That’s Great. Greg, your business must be so much fun, when people show you pictures of what they’ve made of your burls. I hope you have a bulletin board or something to show them off!

Hauntingly beautiful! He truly did the wood justice with his carving.

Usual, we merge the nature beauty of the tree from color and toning point of view. Here the artist used additional aspect – the nature beauty of the form. very niceץ
