Heartwood Rocking Horses

Walnut for toddlers!

Leave a comment

I wanted to feature a new horse that I just completed for the Grovewood Gallery in Asheville at the Grove Park Inn. They requested all non-painted, natural horses, and I was hesitant to try this with the toddler horse. I usually use birch plywood for the rockers, which look best painted fun colors. But I tried using some walnut, and though the color doesn’t blend perfectly across the rockers, I really love this new warm look! You can find this horse at the Grovewood Gallery, or order yours today by sending me an email.

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.
