Hand Carved Blue Hat Shelf Santa Bust From 100 Yr Old Cottonwood Bark:
Hello! My Name is Greg Macdonald and you are offerding on one ofmy original hand carvedworks of Holiday Folk Art!
I have been a full time wood carver forover 20 years, 10of those here on . I also sell at art fairs throughout theMidwest.My carvings have found homes in collections in all 50 states and several foreign countries.
This piece is a hand carved Santacarved from 100 year old cottonwood bark. The bark of aCottonwood tree is unique in that it continues to grow thicker as the tree ages, sometimes 4" thick and upwards. The bark I use averages between 2.5" and 3.5" thick.
All the bark I use is gathered from dead trees. All cracks, knots ect. are incorporated into the design to make a truly unique and one of a kind carving!
It is carved in free standing deep relief (flat on the back). This makes it perfect for sitting on shelves and fire place mantels! TheSanta measures 5" tall by4" wide!!
I have paintedhim in acrylic and thenantiquedit with an oil finish to give it a soft, aged appearance. I leave the backs of each piece natural leaving no doubt it is a one of a kind carving, NOT a reproduction!
I am now offering "shared shipping" ($4.00 per package, I pay the remainder of the cost) in the US on all my sales.
If you would like to be notified when I add new carvings to for sale, please send me a message with your email address and I will add you to my email list.
