The Process

New projects for 2019:

“Wood” carving!


Unfinished Bas Relief of Teepees

Created from  “Spaulted Aspen.” Many different densities of wood encountered, but has enhanced appearance.  Still needs final finish of natural stain and polyurethane.

“Incredible Carving Product!”  Just open the container and pour out a carving!

Yet un-named piece.  Basswood block.

From start to finish:

Illustrated here is the process of how my sculpture was created from a tree stump, block of wood, slab of salvaged tree.

Bear in the Park (137 hours from start to final finish) Cottonwood tree stump was the starting material for the bear commissioned by The Hills at Cherry Creek Park District.
