I call this piece “Mr. Fox”. It looks like Mister Fox sitting in observance of his domain. He is very patient, always alert to any change in the surroundings. I love these pieces that can be slightly turned and it is a whole different look. Like it is a different carving entirely. It sets on a Table or Mantle. It flows and bends in a Smooth Graceful Flow. It is very calming to be around for me. My designs are all unique and spontaneous. I love to flow with the Will of the Wood. This piece is carved out of a beautiful piece of Quilted Big Leaf Maple that I just acquired. It started as a rectangle piece that was 22” x 9”x 2 5/8”. It is an awesome piece of wood. It’s all shimmery and glowing. I am very fortunate to have wood like this to carve. The light really plays with the flowing curves. It is a completely different piece with each turn. There is some wonderful coloration on the one side and just a little on the other, helping it to be two different pieces. It can be turned one way for a while and then turned another to feel like a whole new piece.
