Built from salvaged driftwood, years of collecting to capture the life and energy of this piece the beauty riding the horse also helped me create it, building this piece took several months, and evan getting some good shots took alot of preparation and planing, and a bottle of sauce for some friends with the machine to move it. All the roots in this piece are mainly cedar and red wood, I tryed not to manipulate the natural pieces too much, it is held together by counter sunk screws and bolts and plugged off.

Thanks for looking Lj’s

What a fantastic piece! You create some very unique and beautiful work. It is good that your wife/girlfriend was able to help you create it. I do not seem to be able to get my wife interrested in working in my woodshop.

Clicked for the girl, stayed for the horse. Seriously though, that’s an amazing piece. The best sculpture just exudes raw vitality. That’s the best way I can put it. The horse looks like it could just gallop away if it wanted to.

oh my …. quite possibly the most inticate use of mother natures gifts i have ever seen. You have completely outdone anything i have ever seen in that realm of woodworking. Have another drink on me!
