David Frykman lives and works amidst the cedar trees and rocky shores of Lake Michigan in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. He has been creating his menageries of characters since watching his mother sculpt small figurines for department store window display in the 1950's.

Davidís first career was as a potter and it was with clay that he developed his facility for bringing life and vitality to his creations. While his choice of material has now turned to wood, his high standard of craftsmanship and his fascination with the unlimited potential of human expression remains.

Today David carves each one of his characters, (be they Santas, Wizards, Gnomes or whatever) one at a time, by hand, from carefully selected blocks of Door County cedar. White Cedar is not the easiest wood to carve but it I a beautiful wood with marvelous color and grain. David is careful to allow some of the Cedarís natural beauty to show through the various oil color stains he uses to finish each piece.
