~ Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Sculptures, statues, carvings ~

In this challenge I’m presenting two of my own wood carvings. The Blue Teal Duck was my first major work. I loved the effect of the burned-in texture on the natural wood and decided not to paint it to make it look like a Blue Teal. Still love it!

11″ (~28 cm) from beak to tail.

 

The second woodcarving is of a Haida Ceremonial Bowl. For many years I’ve studied Northwest Native American art, with a focus on the Salish nations from northwest Washington (USA) into British Columbia (Canada).

12″ (~30 cm) from end to end.

At one end is the whale motif, on the other is eagle – both are significant characters in Salish life and lore.
