Construction

Many hours are spent walking  the beaches on the Chesapeake Bay collecting driftwood. The pieces I have created range from dinosaurs to horses, elks to mythical Hippocampus’s.

The sculptures are constructed of all types of wood but usually the legs will be locust or oak.

Pieces are assembled using rust resistant screws that are counter sunk and filled.

The wood is selected for effect and design to create creatures that are realistic and inspirational.

They will be treated with at least four coats of a wood preservative to prevent rot.

I suggest one should place the feet on a concrete or synthetic surface and retreat with a sealer every couple of years.

If properly cared for they should last for many years, unless of course you have beaver issues!
