Stone snowman with metal accents, orange metal carrot nose and wire scarf on a chunky 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 3 3/8" block of wood. I've included a photo of the other snowmen just finished, to show how chunky this block of wood is.
I posted a photo of a snowman on Instagram several days ago; a client requested it custom to give as a Christmas gift. I was surprised by the interest, though there is still quite a bit of winter left!! Figured I'd make a few. Also, it seemed fitting. In Cleveland, we've been getting pounded with snow since before Christmas.
My Grace Dog and I walk on the beach each day. She swims, runs off her excess energy and I collect beach glass, stones, metal, wire, plastic, rubber... bring it all home in my backpack to be used in my art—or recycled.
