  • Intarsia owl mounted on birch branches

    I've made this owl several times with different woods. It's good on it's own, but when you add natural branches to the back, the owl just comes to life naturally. Every time I make one like this, it finds a new home quite quickly. The client this one's for wanted to keep the price down---although it's still a spectacular gift for his mom for Mother's Day. We chose to use walnut, maple, aspen, basswood, cocobolla, and cherry....with birch branches behind. Ebony stain applied eyes and talons. Finished size including the branches, 16" across and 24" high. The hardest part---attaching the branches so they stay put.

      You're right - those branches make it look like real life. Neat idea - and great work on the owl.

        Linda that is absolutely stunning. All of your work is art, but this is something special.

                          Delivered the owl Friday. The guy who bought it was going to give it to his mom for Mother's Day. That changed. Says now that he's seen it, he can't wait that long. It will be a Valentine's gift. His mom's going to get spoiled!
