A pair of dovecotes

These two 1:12 scale dovecotes are made from wood and were separate custom commissions. The top one is three sided to go on the side of a barn. The second one is free standing and is six sided. I carved the little pigeon also.

Here is the photo I worked from and was inspired by:

This is the three sided dovecote before I painted and aged it:

1:12 scale duck decoys-the first 3

Here are the first three antique duck decoys finished and painted. I did not put any wear on these. I think they will make nice accent pieces for a 1:12 scale library, den etc. I am going to be making antique European 1:12 
scale furnishings. Very exciting!

1:12 scale antique duck decoys

I am now carving a series of antique duck decoys in 1:12 scale. Hand carved Jelutong wood, fully feathered. Here is a preview. This is a pintail duck and will be painted.

  I thought that they will nice accent pieces for 1:12 scale rooms- a library or den. The next decoy I am planning will be a mallard, and maybe a swan. Some decoys will show more wear than others.

Esmeralda and goat

This statue, Esmeralda with goat, was a custom commission. Hand carved wood with faux bronze finish. This was an exciting project because I didn't have **a picture to work from**, but several general idea photos that I put together to come up with this interpretation.

The statue measures just 2" (5cm) high. Carved from Jelutong wood.
