Hand Made Wood Table

Hand Made Wood Table by Eric Codner

A self-taught woodworker who has honed his craft over a 20 year period, his works are as pleasing to the eye as his finishes are to the touch.  
Jewelry Box

Jewelry Box

He works in the style of Queen Anne, Chippendale, Federal and Arts and Crafts. Perfection in execution and visual beauty are trademarks of his work.  Using hand tools gives him the freedom to create without the limitations imposed by machinery. Clear finishes bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
 
Magpie

Magpie

David Cericola, master woodcarver, creates birds that are so lifelike, the gallery has been asked if they are products of taxidermy.  Each feather is carved to perfection.  Each bird appears to be live, in its natural setting.  Complimenting the carved wood is exquisitely formed metal work for the legs and vegetation.  
Tricolored Heron

Tricolored Heron

Because of the many months it takes to create each work, when one sells, it is not immediately replaced.  Each new carving is of yet another bird living in the Florida wetlands.  No birds are ever repeated.
 

Wayne Smith Glass Spinner

Wayne Smith Glass Spinner

 

Wayne Smith has become a glass spinning one-man show at the CGMS Gallery.  In demand for demonstrations, he sits outside the gallery creating fantasy figures, animals of all kinds and sailing ships. 
Wayne's Dragon

Wayne’s Dragon

He quickly dispels the notion that he is a glass blower by demonstrating the art of spinning.  Those with pets bring him pictures and he, within a few minutes, recreates the animal in glass.  Collectors of pigs, ducks or dragons try to stump him, but all fail as the collectable appears before their very eyes.
