Award winning Wood Wildlife Sculptor and Wood Carver offer his original sculptures to the public.
Created in Snidely Wood Studio and Art Gallery, Douglas rescues, repurposes, and reclaims wood from desolate areas and wood trimming companies. We never kill a tree. We use wood that would naturally be destroyed by the elements or have had to be taken down and save it from going to a dump.
We purchase or hunt down the wood by risking our life on a beach, swamp or purchase from tree trimmers who are paid to take down a tree due to disease or Property problems.
We mill it down if needed and cure it proper until the moisture level is less than 15% before we start the process of creating something awesome so it is done curing and will not split or crack in the future.
This piece is created by taking a large oak base piece of wood and using many pieces of rescued driftwood and creating a large horse head bust by fitting the different shapes and pieces of the driftwood together like a puzzle.
Each piece is attached mechanically and by bonding it to the base.
Once we complete the construction of the shape and build of the animal, we use automotive paint and automotive clear coat to finish the product so it can be displayed in any environment.
The dimensions of this beast are 29.5″ tall x 29″ deep from front of face to the back of the mane x 17″ wide.
This piece is currently on display in my Art Gallery.
