Two pieces done in cottonwood bark (how unusual for me, right?), 13 inches ''Forest Dwelling'' and 14 inches ''Merchant House by the Plaza''. A returning customer from Nova Scotia got one and their friend another, thanks very much!

These two carvings were named by my (at the time) 22 month old son, he said ''hat'' for the carving on the left and ''ice'' for the one on the right. Well, whatever he really meant it ended up in ''Hut Maker's House'' and ''Icy Roof Cottage''.
Another experimental relief carving, this time on a large box for Magic the Gathering cards.
The center rosette is chip carved and the leaves are done in the relief style, the sides and front of the boxes are chip carved as well:
The piece is finished with Danish oil and light brown gel stain.
