“TO GOD BE THE GLORY”

This monumental family crest is one of a pair of coats-of-arms that I designed and carved to be installed over the entry doors on opposite sides of the Great Room of a Virginia country manor. Each family coat-of-arms is five feet wide, thirty-three inches tall and up to nine inches deep and is carved in linden wood.  Each coat-of- arms took about eleven hundred hours to create from the design stages through its installation.         CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO SEE A LARGER IMAGE

There is a difference between authentic custom wood carving and all other wooden ornament.  Today you can buy decorative woodcarving (sic) that is “carved” by computerized router, that is reproduced in wood-like resin from a hand-carved original, that is pressed in some sort of wood substitute, that is made from a high density urethane foam, even that is hand carved in a third-world country.  Some of these imported pieces are very refined, but most do not stand up very well to close scrutiny.   The majority of these pieces are junk.  But even the truly hand carved work from overseas cannot compare to what we at Sonrise Woodcarving Studio are able to offer, because of the vast disconnect between the artist and you, the client.   We work closely with our clients at every stage of the process from conception to completion to give you exactly what you are looking for, and we guarantee our results. Either in face to face conversations, or by phone, email, and photographs, we work with you to make your dream substantial and completely fulfilling.  Furthermore, we use only the best materials available and time proven techniques of woodworking and wood carving to create our artworks, and we fully guarantee our results.   Our portfolio of past work is our best  resume’,  and both Kofi Donkor and I are masters of our art with a combined experience of well over half a century.   Our commitment is to give you our best of what we have learned from that experience.
