These artworks are  made from mostly birch hardwood and some plywood.  The Sculpt-sects are made from 5/4 and 4/4 birch hardwood with copper wire accents securing the appendages.  No paint was used in their creation, only a combination of oil and water based wood stains.  They are quite large in size and would make an excellent table piece or wall hanging.  Any inquiries should be directed through the Contact Us button to the left.  Thanks for visiting and feed-back is very much appreciated.
