WEBSITE OF WILDFOWL ARTIST TOM BALDWIN

 

The carvings in this section are the ones that demand the highest standards for artistry and the biology of the bird.   They are also the most time involved projects.   Many of these carvings were done for the competitive shows and I post their standings with the photo.   Other carvings were either commission pieces or just projects that I felt like doing.  Because of the high commitment of skill that these carvings require I choose to refer to this style of carving as gallery style.  In the competitive circles this style is more commonly known as “decorative”.
