MEANING:  Celebrate Spring! Enjoy the touch of Spring even when you are in the middle of deep hibernation. Let these Celtic Flowers assure you of the return of Warm Days, Growth and Abundance! 

Flower meanings have fascinated people for centuries.Within flower symbolism, different times have given different meanings to specific flowers. In the Victorian Era, which flowers were combined together gave them even more significance and meaning.

Katrina designed the first of these Celtic Flowers on a Hurricane Sunday in 2016 at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. The large flower with the Celtic Knot Flower and Leaf came first and the Mini next. A custom request created the Hummingbird and Flower. The final design is the Hummingbird and Bud whose creation came about because of an oopsy poopsy with the scroll saw… 

And the best thing about this indoor garden…the squash vine borers can’t kill them… Yes, I have issues….

THE CARVING:

Our carvings are single pieces of western red cedar, designed and carved to be wall hangings.  Each carving begins as a 1 X 12 inch cedar board.  While we use power tools (Scroll Saw, Rotary shaft Tool, handheld detail sanders etc.), we use no laser’s, CNC machines or computer operated cutting machines.  All work is done with our hands and eyes… 

We cut the 2 dimensional blanks with scroll and jig saws (double-sized custom orders have to be cut with jigsaw). Carving is done with rotary shaft tools and disc grinders. The 80 grit sanding is the final phase of the carving process, removing the nicks and gouges from the carving tools, and finishes the shaping of the weave. The next 2 sandings with 120 then 220 grit finishes the smoothing and polishing. They are finished with Clear Danish Oil to seal the piece, bringing out the grain and the color.

 

The pictures you see here are stock photos. What you get will depend on what we have in stock. If there are no others in stock, the time to shipping will be increased. If you desire and request something (for example) dark, we will pull the darkest board we have, but it will not necessarily be as dark as (for example) walnut would be. Western Red Cedar is the species from which roofing shingles, decks, and gazeboes have traditionally been made. It is resistant to mold, moisture, and insects. The oiling process also helps to block out damaging UV rays of the sun, so our carvings can be hung outdoors. Please be aware, that even with the oiling, the carving will eventually gray out, as any cedar will, if it is placed in direct sunlight.

 SIZE OF THE CARVINGS: The stock carvings are limited by the size of the board that starts the carving process. As the initial piece is 1 in. x 12 in., (in reality 3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in.) one side of the carving will be no greater then approximately 11-1/2 in.
