All these carved vessels start out in the log form and are carved using a chainsaw and grinders to create all the unique designs. No two are alike due to the carving process and the wood. Some have embellishments added to them, such as stitching like the first picture. This piece had a natural crack that was left to open and shape and then gold lacing was stitched through pearl eyelets that were drilled into the piece. We also add stone inlays such as turquoise into natural cracks to add a pop of color, like the second picture . The third picture shows a large wavy Juniper bowl that has various stones, abalone and fossils inlaid.
The fourth picture is a large canyon shaped vessel with natural openings left in tact during the carving process. The fifth picture is a large twister vase shaped vessel. Carved from a Juniper Burl, wavy twists were carved into the piece, sweeping up the piece. Then lastly is our signature carving, a mesquite sculpture that features three tunnels carved into it, allowing you to see through the middle of the piece.
