This is my latest project completed just a couple of days ago. I took a seminar on Carving a Wood Spirit at Lee Valley and this is the result. Carved from cottonwood bark, I call him “Winkle” !

Good work, Anna. He’s very rustic and natural – just like a wood spirit should be.

Ah the memories! Reminds me of the Mr. Natural craze back in the ‘70s. Cool!

Thanks all for your kind comments. The seminar was definitely worth it! Now I just have to find some more cottonwood to make another. Maybe next time I’ll get the mouth better!
