Each of these one-of-a-kind hand-crafted decorative items are created from genuine pine, hand-carved, stained and painted solely by me. They can be displayed as either wall hangings or tables. The legs are painted and stained to match the motif of the table-top. Although sealant is used to protect the design, I recommend the use of a glass round to further protect the artwork.  For use as a wall hanging, a sturdy chain is affixed to the back. Each item is signed, numbered and dated.

When I create a Relief Carving, my first step is to sketch out the design in pencil - first on paper, then right onto the wood. This is the sketch for the Mermaid at the very top of this page.
The next step is to carve the design into the wood. To give the impression of depth in a scene, I carve deeper into the wood. When I'm done, there are many different levels and textures...water, leaves, animal fur, rock, feathers, even beams of light!
I use a very high quality water-based acrylic to paint these carvings. I finish with 4 coats of semi-gloss polycrylic clear coat, which I have to sand in between each coat. I also detail with pearlized paints that are very hard to find, and require an additional coat of spray gloss during the process.


Here is the finished Table and Chair ensemble. 

The table top is 30 inches in diameter, 1-1/8th inches thick. The buyer provided the metal table and chair bases.z
