Our family has carved wood spirits called Whimseys or “Wurzlekofe” for almost 40 years . We continue the tradition of  carving  faces in dead fall and driftwood we collect.  These faces add character and life to any room, yard or garden . We carve the root of the tree branch which retains its resin years after the rest of the tree rots. We also carve larger pieces in burls, scarred trees and stumps. These whimsical characters bring the wood to life and are great gifts. They can be purchased in Kenora at Abundance Crafts and The Blue Herron Gift Store. A nice selection of carvings are always available in Sioux Narrows during  the summer months at The Narrows Gift Store. Also Sunset Gallery often has a larger piece in its display area.
