About the Artist: Inspired by a Virginia wood decoy carver many years ago, New Hampshire woodcarver Joe Klementovich uses a combination of hand tools and power tools to obtain the finest detail possible in Tupelo, Basswood and some native NH White Pine. Postures of flight or fight are a key end result but adding curiosity, play and false charging add to the fun of wood sculpting these cool beings. Along with realism goals, anatomically correctness, color nuances and physics of flight add to the excitement of the finished scene.
