The Orca have landed.

I have FINALLY stopped sanding, spraying, mounting, unmounting, and otherwise fussing over this sculpture!  Today I delivered it to the You & I Framing & Gallery, 214 W 1st Ave., Kennewick, WA. 

I put a lot of myself and a great deal of time into producing this piece.  Please go have a look.

Killer Sculpture ;-)

Nearing completion is my 3 part sculpture of an orca cow and calf mounted on "coral".   All 3 pieces are Sycamore wood.  The wood for the 2 orca (actually 7 pieces of wood) are all from one massive log segment.  The coral carving is a multi forked piece that's been laying around here for years.  I'm glad to FINALLY find the perfect use for it.

The orca have been sanded glassy smooth and are getting several coats of spar urethane.  Soon they will be mounted on the coral using stainless steel hardware.

These are not yet sold and are destined for display at the You & I Framing and Art Gallery in downtown Kennewick, WA.  Other carvings available can be found on my newly redesigned website at
