About Sandra

Welcome,

My name is Sandra Skodnik, this site has come about from my hobby and love of wood of the last 20 years. Because of the time and passion I have put into each individual piece I have not been able to let any go until now, but the want to live each day doing what I am best at has led me to open this site and offer my work for sale.

Each piece starts from a thought, which usually comes to me half way through my last project. I then spend a day or two designing and sketching, sometimes I make a small clay model before I start carving.

When choosing a suitable wood for the project I take into consideration the colour, grain and workability. I have had the most pleasure working in recycled timber, it is full of surprises. I hand carve each project with traditional carving tools, and like to finish with Penetrol Wood Oil. The average project takes approximately one month to complete. All this resulting in a uniquely crafted piece you will not find the same as, any where.

I enjoy designing projects that challenge and excite me, and somtimes combine craft with a practical use.

My aim is to continue producing a wide variety of fine quality work, and look forward to sharing it with people that admire this craft.
