Heartwood Rocking Horses

In Progress

Leave a comment

I am currently starting a Classic style horse out of dark walnut! I purchased this wood from a shop going out of business in the area and planned to make my rockers out of it. But it is so beautiful that I can’t help building a whole horse out of it! Check back in a few weeks to see the progress!

I live and work in Asheville, NC. I've been learning to carve since 2012, and started my own rocking horse business in 2013. I've always loved drawing horses, and find those skills practiced as a teenager now come in handy as I carve each horse to life from chunks of wood. I love creating things that children can enjoy, move with, and learn from. I also love hiking through the hills of the Asheville area, swimming in the icy waterfalls, and hanging out with my husband and my dog.
