Sadly, we are not carving right now.
Chainsaw Carvings by Ed Crow
"As an engineer my days are "constrained" by straight lines and perfect curves. Carving gives me the mental freedom to freely create without patterns or templates. I carve for fun and because it's a good combination of creativity, physical exercise, use of tools and mental concentration."
"Encouraged by my wife, Janise, I started carving in 2007 with my sister Anne from the west coast who was already a predecessor in the art." Ed
Part of being a chainsaw artist working with large logs, lots of rumbling saws, and other dangerous tools is the norm. Every carver I know has a story about being "bit" cut by a saw, grinder, or some other powerful tool. It's physically challenging, messy, and noisy, but Ed loves it. It's a chance to change mental gears and have an creative outlet. Ed puts himself into his sculptures, conveying something more than the obvious wildlife form, symbol, or shape.
Ed carves at our "Crows Nest" and has carved at many carving shows and festivals nation wide. Ed's work can be seen in private gardens throughout PA, Cle Elm WA, Stafford VA, and Georgia. His sculptures have been featured in the Centre Daily Times News Paper, Centre of it All TV and exhibited at the Bellefonte Art Museum. I invite you to check out his latest works on our blog and on social media.
