Wood carvings for sale: Life sized American Quarter Horse wood carving for sale, Gig Harbor Washington State

American Quarter Horse

​This life size stallion horse is made out of Western Red Cedar. Jeff innovated the carving world when he came up with his technique in creating his horse sculptures. They are hollowed in the center so the horse's legs can support the weight of its body, and Jeff's seams and joinery, since wood moves, is a technical skill that Jeff has mastered in his sculptures.


(This sculpture was not a custom order and is currently for sale. Serious inquiries only please.)

Stallion​

 CUSTOM WOOD SCULPTURES  

Jeff carved this magnificent life size sculpture out of Western Red Cedar over the course of four years (remember my saying "wood moves" in the description of the Stallion horse above) allowing the wood to dry and fit tightly together. Over the course of time, what started out as a single log was transformed into a gorgeous work of art.

Jeff carved this gorgeous custom fourteen foot tall sculpture out of Redwood for the Filson Flagship store in Manhattan, New York. Its rich tones are typical of Redwood which can range from salmon pinks to deep burgundys. It features thirty interacting wolves with varying poses and expression.

Filson

The city of Gig Harbor asked Jeff to carve them a totem at Crescent Creek Park. The masterpiece Jeff created incorporates 162 local marine and wildlife elements  interacting in a flow ranging from the sky to the depths of Puget Sound and back up to the sky. This sculpture is a wonderful attraction for Gig Harbor, WA locals to bring their out of town guests to enjoy.

Jeff carved Lady Gaga singing "Joanne" during the Chetwynd International Chainsaw Carving Competition 2018. He took first place. The extreme technical difficulty of getting all of the interacting elements to align perfectly was quite the feat to pull off in a timed competition. He had to take into consideration the height of both the piano and bench, her body positioning and distance from the piano, her right heel just needed to touch, the same for her left toe, and her thumb just barely resting on the depressed piano key of "G" as the song is written in.

This 360 degree Redwood bench sculpture contains thirty three interacting wolves and is fourteen feet tall.

​​This two seat bench sculpture got its name for a very good reason. It is carved from a very special piece of old growth Redwood. Old growth stumps were left on site after being logged typically at the height of eight to ten feet. Over a hundred years later, JMS Wood Sculpture was able to reclaim this portion of a discarded stump by legally obtaining it from our good friends at Redwood Burl Inc. giving it new life. It still has the original springboard notch used by the loggers in Humboldt, California who felled this tree before the massive Redwood groves were protected.
It was important to Jeffrey to ensure the original springboard notch remained intact in the right bench seat. In fact, he based the entire sculpture around this notch as a reminder of the mass logging that led activists to fight for the protection of the Redwoods. Thanks to their efforts we can still enjoy these rare coastal beauties.

​The Notch

This sculpture is fourteen feet long, nine feet tall, weighs around 3,500 lbs and is carved out of rescued reclaimed old growth Redwood. We would like to thank our friends at Redwood Burl for providing the wood used in this sculpture, and a beautiful location in which to carve it. If you would like to view their website lick the following link: https://redwoodburl.com/partners-small-business/
