​​This sculpture 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, J. M. S. 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.

Jeff carved Lady Gaga singing "Joanne" during the Chetwynd International Chainsaw Carving Competition 2018. He took first place. The technical difficulty of body positioning and distance from the piano while having her heel, toe, and thumb just barely touching the ground and piano was extreme. Jeff even made sure that she was hitting the key "G" as the song is written in.  Click on the images below for an enlarged view of the sculptures progress.
