Heartwood Rocking Horses

The holidays are coming!

tools and rocking horse head to be carvedWell, things have been busy here at Heartwood. So busy that I haven’t had time to update the site in a while. And sadly so busy that I was not able to attend the Art in the Park event last weekend! I wish I could have been there, but all the horses I have on hand are slotted to be sold, so I didn’t want to bring them out into the public with nothing to offer that someone could actually purchase and take home. Hopefully this was the right decision.

I am excited to announce that you will soon be able to see my horses in shops here in Asheville! Look for them towards the end of October at the Nest Organics store on Lexington in downtown Asheville. This is a beautiful store with all natural products for infants, kids, and the home. They will be carrying my smaller horses, and possibly featuring a large one in the window!

Also, by the end of November, the Grovewood Gallery at the Grove Park Inn, with one of the most spectacular views in town, will be featuring my larger horses and a small one as well. They have the most beautiful hand made furniture and art, and lovely wooden toys. If you haven’t been there you really should check it out. And enjoy a hot chocolate out on the Inn veranda or by the giant fire place!

I can still take another order or two in the Asheville area for the holidays, and am always able to start orders for next year as well!

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.
