One of my favorite restaurants (Route 4 Restaurant) dropped a social media post earlier in the day that caught my attention.
It wasn’t to announce another one of their tasty specials but to bring attention to a local artist working on, showing, and selling his art outside the eatery.
I had to check that out. Not a lot of artwork floating about the area and certainly no an artesian at work, on display.
I rolled up to a simple displace of some really nice work.
Whimsical, natural looking characters full of detail with those extra touches making the craftsmanship really pop.
((If Santa is reading… I love the gnome))
Works start at around $80 going up depending on size and detail. Not bad when you consider the time and artistic ability required to create such pieces. – Great holiday gift idea for anyone on your list who loves unique, one of a kind creations.
And did you catch the part about how everything is made with a chainsaw?
Meet the artist, Luca.
Luca was super nice and you could tell he was really into his work. He lives in rural Randolph County so I encouraged him to check the area for spring and fall festivals where he can show off, and I am sure, sell his work. His carvings are unique and detailed and sure to turn a few heads at local gatherings.
You have to check out Luca actually creating his art, time accelerated of course. His social media pages have several Reels (videos) showing him at work.
