The Gun Exchange

When first searching for blocks of hardwood to use for carving, I found that some of the best pieces were sold as gunstock. So I decided to take a gun blank and turn it into something else, retaining enough of the gun to show the transformative connection. The result is a series of 5 sculptures: 2 shotguns, 2 rifles, and 1 pistol. For me, wood sculpture is a tactile art. The finished product invites one to touch it and not just remain an observer. Therefore the horizontal gun sculptures are intended to be mounted on a wall or placed in a gun rack as an actual gun would be so they can be easily picked up and handled to experience the feel of the wood.
