Each handcrafted art piece is carved in cedar wood with only small hand-held knives and tools. From conception, each piece can take anywhere from 20 - 300+ hours to carve and is finally coated with a polymer resin. The prices are reflective of how long the piece took to create, the complexity of the design & finally, my sentimental bond with the piece. All of these were crafted with the fullest attention to detail - and were a labor of love and passion to create. In fact, these pieces were never meant to be sold - my attachment to them during the carving process has led me to keep them caged for years - but I have finally decided to let them free. Each is a one-of-a-kind original and will never be made again.
