About Our Work
As an artist who creates beautiful paintings uses different pigments and with different brush strokes, we wood artists employ the color and texture of the wood and the strokes of various techniques to create a work of art.
To accomplish this, we must see and understand the beauty and nature of the wood we use. In laying out the wood for each piece, we make the figure of the grain flow so there is as much continuity as possible. We use the color of the wood or contrasting colors to highlight the design. Because wood contains such a depth and texture, we enjoy complimenting and displaying these characteristics so others can appreciate the wood’s beauty. As sculptors, we remove all the unnecessary wood to reveal the images and shapes that we desire. In creating each unique piece, we strive for integrity of skill in our work that will stand the test of time.
The process of making a custom piece is enjoyable and creative. Our aim is to hear what you, our client, wants so that we can make a beautiful piece that will meet your needs and your aesthetic values.
