Birds of prey are another popular subject for us. Mark carved this 5 foot tall flying Great Horned Owl from reclaimed Red Oak. Used various chainsaws, grinders, chisels and other tools, he created this beauty.
The details on the owl's body and impressive wingspan were burned with a torch and chiseled by hand to bring out the feathers and body shape. The owl's realistic face and head are burned and accented with white paint to bring out the features. The sculpture is sealed with several coats of satin outdoor clear polyurethane.
The owl currently graces a corner nook at the base of a flight of stairs where it greets visitors coming through the home's front door.
