Category Archives: Wood Carving Guild

COMPLETED: Waiter, there’s a zoo in my dining room!

As some of you know, Joanne is the head judge for the California Carvers Guild (CCG). A few weeks ago she received a phone call from a gentleman whose wood-carving father-in-law had passed away some time ago. His family had just located his will and discovered that it included instructions to donate his carvings to the CCG for display in their museums or local clubs or to sell as they saw fit and donate the proceeds to CCG.

Joanne and the son-in-law arranged a drop-off time at our house and as of today they’re bunched up in our dining room 🙂 (As usual, mine are record-keeping pics rather than art, so… sorry for the “drive-by shooting” of such fine work. I’ll upload all over the next few days and mark the subject line “Complete” so you’ll know when they’re ready.)

Enjoy! (Remember to click the pic to see the BIG PICTURE!)

The complete menagerie.

Nice horse carving.

I believe this is an Ibis.

The entire flock is here.

Very nice rams head bookends.

Back side of the bookends.

A few more rams heads…

(I suggest you click on the Komodo pics to see and appreciate the great detail the artist used in this piece – very, very cool!)

Pandora and Alf helping me work 🙂

Apparently Pan didn’t like the italics typestyle I was using and was trying to straighten out my typing 😉

Seriously – who knew cats could be such Luvs? What a character and Luv Queen Pandora is.
