Description

Bradford Pear heartwood color ranges from a pale pink to a light reddish brown, making for an excellent wood for serving pieces. Richard hand carves all his creations starting with a large chunk of wood that has interesting grain, insect damage, and/or wormholes. This particular piece was naturally grained like the back of a stingray and took shape to accentuate the wood grain and other unique characteristics.

These common trees have been used extensively for landscaping, specifically down a driveway because of their beautiful blooming flowers during spring. Unfortunately, mature trees often lose limbs or split in half, due to high wind storms or hurricanes.  The wood is extremely dense and fine-grained making it particularly good for carving, but downed trees usually end up in the wood chipper. Richard looks for every opportunity to reclaim pear wood, and this artistic rendition of a graceful sea creature is a fine example of his talent to “listen to the wood.”

    OMG – this is hand-carved??!!! It looks like that piece of wood was made for this shape, but it took a special eye to see that! What an awesome piece of work 🙂
