Whittlins 'N Wood by Marcia Berkall
Wood Carving & Wood Sculpture by
Much of my work is influenced by the beauty,
history and natural resources of Maine. Of particular intrigue is the concept
of giving "new life to old wood". Not only is using "found" wood ecologically
sound, but it supports a belief that wood is alive and therefore dynamic. In
driftwood, tree spirits appear and in wooden lobster buoys of yesterday emerge
the faces of the fabled downeast fishermen. Carved of native pine or basswood
and painstakingly hand painted, my free-standing downeast fishermen continue the
nautical theme. You will also find the Maine influence in some of my original,
copyrighted, Old World and contemporary santa designs.
