The collaboration of our husband and wife partnership enhances our highly creative and unique work.
We create soft looking sculptural objects, inspired by nature and fashion, out of hard woods.
Each twist, turn, bend and fold of the life size sculptural wood objects are carved with individually executed pieces fitted together,
then finely sanded and oiled to celebrate the beauty, natural colors and grain of the wood.

  Carved Walnut Box with Ginkgo's and Koi      L 97

 Carved Walnut Box with Gingko's
Koi Carved from Ginkgo wood, with African Blackwood Eyes
 Rare Earth Magnets
Brass Pin and Sleeve Hinge


3.5 inches high x 4 inches in Diameter

Sold 

We wanted to capture the image of seeing a fish in a pond, just surfacing under some floating leafs. We started by temporarily pinning 2 pieces of Walnut together to form a square block, so we could carve the box as one piece into a spherical shape. After carving all the Ginkgo leafs in place, we carve and fit the Koi fish out of Ginkgo wood. The eyes are carved separately from African Black, they bring the fish to life. Then we take it apart and carve out the inside, fit the brass pin and sleeve to allow the lid to pivot sideways to open and magnets to hold the lid closed. We use India Ink for the black background and finish with a penetrating oil.

Brass Pin and Tube for the Hinge
Rare Earth Magnets for the Catch

4.5 inches high x 5 inches in Diameter

We carved this box to look like a flower bud, finely carving a texture on the outside.
We started by temporarily pinning 2 pieces of Walnut together to form a square block, so we could carve the box as one piece. After the outside is carved and sanded, we take it apart and carve out the inside. Then fit the brass pin and sleeve to allow the lid to pivot sideways to open and magnets to hold the lid closed. The final step is to use a penetrating oil to enhance the natural beauty.

 

              Carved Cherry Box, Box       L96

Rare Earth Magnets
Brass Pin and Sleeve Hinge
2 ¾ inches high x 3 ½ inches wide

$275.

This charming box may look like a corrugated cardboard box, but it is really a wood box carved from cherry.
The lid pivots sideways on a brass pin and is held in place with magnets. We start with one piece of cherry, slice off a piece for the lid and re-attach it with little dowel pins, so we can carve it as one piece. After the outside is carved and pre-sanded, we take it apart and carve out the inside. Fit the brass pin and sleeve to allow the lid to pivot sideways to open and magnets to hold the lid closed and then hand sand with micro-mesh , up to 12,000 grit, to get the shine and show the beautiful grain. The final step is to use a penetrating oil to enhance the natural beauty.

For the Apple of your eye, Apple for the teacher. This Apple, with the swing top will make a great gift or presentation box for that special occasion. The apple is carved from bloodwood, with its natural red color, walnut stem and carved poplar leaf. The top is held closed with 2 magnets. We carve the lid and the body of the apple as one piece, joined together with little dowel pins. After the outside is carved and pre-sanded, we take it apart and carve out the inside. Fit the pin, sleeve and magnets and then carve the stem and leaf to fit the contours of the apple. Before gluing the stem and leaf on, we finish hand sand with micro-mesh , up to 12,000 grit, to get the shine and show the beautiful grain. The final step is to use a penetrating oil to enhance the natural beauty.
