Art is an extension of one’s self, often manifest through an object.
Some of the stronger and more ornate pieces go for between $100 to $200.
Those are for very unique pieces that are often special request and rare materials.
Most of the work I do is affordable for anyone, from $5, $20, $40 on up to $80.
First I find branches or saplings that are dead or scheduled for clearing.
Then I meditate and offer prayers to the spirits regarding the wood.
Designs are made clear to me, so I begin by carving layers.
Next I sand and wood burn patterns, symbols, and text.
Then I oil the wood using organic oils, or stains.
Sometimes I add a thin coat of polyurethane if gloss (glamour) is desired.
Finally I add leather, metals, and other finishing details and allow its new life to begin.
