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.

Latest Cedar Scrimshaws™

Got a few more cedar scrimshaws finished over the last few weeks.

As usual, the wood is always eastern red cedar. I used pastels, color pencils and ink for the color, then used a dremel to inscribe some of the lines.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to call these mixed media creations.

On more than one occasion friends and customers have remarked they look like a form of scrimshaw. So perhaps I’ll go with cedar scrimshaw for a while. Here is another new piece.

This one, along with the ‘Stripers Feeding’ piece I did a few weeks ago are headed to New Elements Gallery in Wilmington tomorrow with a new representative.

This is the first time I’ve wrapped the design around the wood. It was challenging, but I like how it turned out.
