About the artist:
In 1975, Gordon began carving as a hobby. As a child, he lived near a wood carver whom the family greatly admired and who inspired Gordon to try carving himself. Through hard work and dedication, his hobby soon snowballed into a career. Now Gordon’s bird sculptures are widely acclaimed and sold across the country, including at the Smithsonian Institution. Gordon uses an array of the finest hardwoods. Using a combination of woods not only gives each bird distinction, but also highlights its features. Each part of the bird, from head to tail, is accentuated by the various shades of the hardwoods. The carving should not be placed near heat or in direct sunlight. Use a paste wax for polishing.
Hand-crafted in the U.S.A.
