Old Abe, Case Eagle.
Custom carved for an avid collector of tractor memorabillia. Carved out of Northern Catalpa wood.
"The Perch" was carved in late November on site in Down Town Chicago for the Chicago Park District. It is located along the bike path at 31st Street and Lake Shore Drive. It is named for a magnificent Hawk, I think a Coopers Hawk, who would visit me and perch upon the top of the sculpture and eat his meal as I worked away. I took many pictures and video of him when he would visit and I built him a table or "perch" at the highest point of the sculpture for him to dine and or survey the area for his next meal.
A Story Pole
A custome sculpture carved in an oak log that the Customer had to remove as the top had become unstable. I picked it up and brought it home to carve. It was a huge log, around 5000 pounds so I had had to hire a wrecker to pick it up.
Bear & Beer
Kim & Neener
One of my all time favorites. Kim and Neener is a tribute to a woman and her horse and the bond that is shared between them.
