These are our newst carved sculpture pieces, with the exception of “Twister”. Twister and Lilly of the Valley were posted earlier, but we finally were able to get professional photos done of it. It’s such a magnificent sculpture and these photos are much better than mine. The other pieces are as follows:
“Astaire”-Named after Fred Astaire because it looks like it’s dancing. Made from Alligator Juniper with turquoise inlay, Scott carved flowing waves and bends and feet.
“Wormy”-Made from mesquite this beauty was just loaded with worm holes, thus its name. Folds, waves and bends were carved and the bottom was narrowed down to a point where it sits on an ebonized walnut base. This was our favorite out of the lot and now resides at a dear friends home.
“Bullet Proof”-Made from Alligator Juniper Burl-The name says it all. This piece was riddled with bullets, making the carving process quite hard and doing a number on the chainsaw and grinders. It has a vase shape and sits on an ebonized walnut base. One bullet was left in the piece and another glued onto the base. Turquoise was inlayed into the natural cracks.
“Pretty In Pink”-A beautiful wall piece made from Box Elder Burl that was loaded with pink. It has graceful waves to show off the burl and left as natural as possible to not take away from its beauty.
“Lilly of the Valley”-Made from Alligator Juniper this piece is a past posting, but we finally got professional photos of it.
