Antler Carvings with "Love for the Detail". My love for the forest, wildlife and natural materials gives me a feeling of great satisfaction and provides the inspiration for the work I do. Gathering materials from the forest is enjoyable such as finding sheds and wood burls for decorative bases and bowls. Each carving is a beautifully detailed, one of a kind piece. The time required for each piece depends on the size, the amount of carving and detail. Every carving is a signed original. In addition to items available for sale I will gladly custom carve your own scene. For more information, please feel free to contact me.
