I love discovering new things. Handcrafted garden art is one of my favorite things to find. When I went to a recent art show, I stumbled upon the most amazing artist. She created beautiful works of garden art using a chainsaw and then used the sawdust to create a special dough that she added to the pieces and then created small characters made up of just the dough. I hope Whimsical & Enchanting Wooden Garden Art will show you ideas on transforming your garden into a magical oasis.
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” – Pablo Picasso
The closer I looked at each piece, the more amazing her artwork became. Every sculpture had so much character, that it made it almost impossible to choose which pieces I liked the best. I said almost...in the end I had to bring a few of those cuties home. I hope you enjoy this little window into another world:
Here are just a few of her Whimsical & Enchanting Wooden Garden Art pieces:
1) Home is where you gnome is.
Look at the details on this adorable little gnome. The legs and feet are made of spoons.
2) Wise Old Owl.
Every garden needs an owl – especially one this adorable. As you can see his eyes, beak and feet are made of the sawdust dough and the rest is chainsaw carved wood.
3) Part of the sea.
An adorable seahorse would make any garden better.
4) Enchanting Toadstools.
Look at how amazing these toadstools are. These guys were especially hard to leave behind, I wanted everything. I really love the one with the frog.
5) The sweetest daisy…
Just look at that face! Doesn’t it make you want to melt?
6) Vulture love.
This guy got the most attention at the booth. He was the one that drew everyone in.
7) Shuttle Explorer.
When you want to rock your garden to the outer limits. Yes, I went there.
8) Lots to crow about.
Look at this cute fella with his little fork feet!
9) Goblins galore.
Do you see the little spider dangling from the sign?
How can you resist?
10) Pumpkin pals.
11) Witches watching you.
12) Trick or Treat?
13) Winter wonderland.
This one came home with me…
14) Under the sea.
15) The cutest frog in the world…
