  1. AWARD-WINNING RINGNECKED PHEASANT CARVING:The last realistic “in the round” bird I ever did, I sculpted this ring-necked pheasant in 1987 as an entry into an East Coast carving show. It took “Best in Show” in its class. My daughter now has this piece.

    1. Absolutely beautiful! As a bird watcher and a bird lover, it has always been your realistic bird carvings that I love the most. These carvings are done with such attention to detail that even the most subtle characteristics of the bird are captured in your work. Just amazing…

      1. Thank you Bob. Coming from you, I know how much of a compliment this is, and it is much appreciated. Don’t forget to watch the “owls” pages: That’s where my head is at right now.

  2. FOUR BAS RELIEF TILES OF RUBY THROAT HUMMINGBIRDS: These four tiles are carved in Ultra-High-Density Urethane Foam, not wood: A synthetic that is used extensively because of its superior properties and its similarities to wood as a carving medium. I created these pieces as experiments with the intention of at some time using them as master models from which to make molds for resin casts. I particularly like hummingbirds, of which there are nearly two-hundred and fifty species in the Americas, all of which are flying jewels and wonderful subjects for artistic studies.
