Heartwood Rocking Horses

New Photos and New Site Setup!

Leave a comment

I’m so excited to add new photos to the site, recently taken by photographer Julie McMillan of Silver Birch Studio Photography. They are stunning! I also took this chance to change the site set-up a little. Hopefully things will be a little more clear and a little less wordy in some instances.

Most noticeable is the change to the Stable. I changed this to be the Custom Design area to showcase my 4 main styles to give people ideas of what they can order. But I have also branched out into custom shapes, figures, heads and whatever else you can think of, so these 4 shapes are not the only thing I have to offer.

I also added a Currently Available section to display horses currently available for immediate purchase. These are either here at my workshop or reside in a retail location as specified. Prices are listed as well. I hope this make it easier to tell what you can pick up right away and may draw attention to the wonderful shops that are hosting my work.

Enjoy the new photos! I’ll be using them to apply to the Southern Highland Craft Guild, the Piedmont Craftsmen, and the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild so look for updates on that process.

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.
