to the world of Carvatures relief wood carvings. What you will find
in the wood crafts art gallery is just a small sample of relief
wood carvings from award winning wood carver, D. Bruce Walker.
What is almost impossible to see from the Photos
of the carvings is the depth of the cut into the wood. Relief wood
carvings have been described by many like a "3D picture"
where the image seems to “leap” from the wood. Several
carvings in the art gallery Celebrity Photos are “shallow
relief”, meaning the cut into the wood is only a quarter inch
or so. Others, like the bears, will spring forth from the wall hanging
by 4 or 5 inches. Unfortunately, it is impossible to capture the
wood crafts detail in a photo. If a part of the relief wood carving
seems to be out of focus, this is because that part of the wood
carving is several inches deep.
||Not only did award winning wood carver
D. Bruce Walker do relief carvings that hang on the wall like a 3D
picture, he also created wood sculptures. These can sit on a desk
or table and are carved all the way around.
There was not much that Bruce could not carve.
This past summer (2008) Bruce Walker passed away. The
family has decided to keep the Carvings that had not been sold.
We will keep the website going to show the fabulous carvings Bruce
created during his life.
