I’m calling this one “Living on the Edge”. These two forest buddies love hanging out on the edge of things. There is not nearly the competition for lifes needs and they enjoy such a wonderful view! I like thinking that I am hanging out on a ledge sharing a moment with these forest fellows. This is one of my favorite cliff themed carvings. I love the proportions of this one.
Please check out the carvings that I have sold on etsy. You can click on 1100 sales in my shop on the left side of my shop page in blue to see everything that has sold and check out my feedback to see what customers have thought about my work.

The technique I use is called Pierced Relief. It is carved out of one piece of wood and nothing is added. I have been carving since 1971 and a tree was the first carving I did. I have always been stimulated to carve a resemblance of a tree out of a tree. My technique has evolved over all of these years to what you see here. I keep seeing ways to make things more life like. And I love a piece to look like it is in the middle of a story that each observer can make up. Sometimes a different story each time we look at it and sometimes the same one. I love giving a piece the feeling of action. Sometimes tranquil and sometimes playful. I love it all.
