Scrimshaws at Seagrove Pottery

Owl & Hibiscus
A very special commissioned piece

I recently made an agreement with Seagrove Pottery in Cary, NC to sell my cedar scrimshaws.

Seagrove Pottery is a very unique place to shop. They have a colorful assortment of pottery in many forms, but they also feature a few local artists and their crafts. So I’m thrilled to be able to join in with such a fantastic group of people.

I took them some cedar coasters, which a good friend inspired me to try out, and a hummingbird, which my girlfriend first inspired me to try. They loved the creations and asked I do a bunch more. So I obliged and got busy.

Then, a few flower pieces. The first is Plumeria, and the second is a Dogwood.

New Cedar Scrimshaws

I’ve been creating new cedar scrimshaws lately for a few commissions, and also stock for the store in Cary.

These pieces are inspired by a good friend’s suggestion after seeing some of my cardinals. As usual, they are crafted with aromatic eastern cedar, and the artwork is original. I used pastels, color pencils and ink after cutting and sanding the wood to prepare for the artwork. The only thing engraved on these cedar scrimshaws are the signatures.

After milling a few logs lately….

I have plenty of canvasses to do things like, maybe this…all on one piece…but with varying species of birds and flowers.

Here are some ‘process’ milling pics from yesterday. Log #2 is under my belt. The Alaskan chainsaw mill is working great!
