Hi! I’m Deborah. Every bend, curve, and knot in a tree inspires me. They are my guides. Using a simple knife I hand carve each ornament from salvaged birch. My goal is to give new life to a fallen limb through traditional carving techniques and careful hand painting. After carving each piece, I add color using a wash of acrylic paint and water. A single application of stain provides depth along with a subtle look of age. Finally, I finish with a light matt varnish to protect the delicate birch bark and painted surface.
