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.

Ellen Rice White (Kwulasulwut) has endowed Della with spiritual and cultural guidance around the use and energy of the medicines.
