carved from old growth cedar stands 8 feet tall, this wood had some great color from being buried in the ground for so many years.

Jeffro, when you tell me you love nature, I’m inclined to believe you;)

That is one spectacular carving. It looks like some kind of futuristic totem pole….I really love the way the wood has weathered….what did you finish it with? Do you start out with a chainsaw to rough out the shape? That is definitely gallery quality.

Have tried to work with weathered cedar and came out like crap… rough/burred/uneven.
The look of your art is like a cognac laze on the edge of a warm glass.
Flowing silk… damn.
Excellent.

Wonderful piece – a combination of great creativity and skill. Like some of the others on the site I would be very interested to learn something of your techniques, particularly the joinery in some of your other pieces.

I like this more than the other one. I’m cutting down a cedar tree soon to take to my Uncles sawmill. After seeing these I almost want to reconsider having it sliced up into boards. These sculptures a true pieces of art Jeffro.
