Eventing Window Ornament
Working in wood gives each turned ornament it's on distinct individuality, but due to the knots and different textures within the cedar wood it is a difficult wood to turn. Yet, when turned properly the aromatic red cedar has a beautiful range of color highlights that vary from deep purples, reds, chocolates and even creams.
To create a light and delicate feel to the window ornaments, as well as room for our inserts, we hollow out the ornament to within an 1/8 inch thickness.
We then go through our finishing process that leaves a smooth, glass like protective coating on the ornament, before inserting one of the different hand crafted miniatures
The interior carving is out of a soft maple. Morgan Stapp does an original, hand carved, master carving that is approximately 8-10 inches in size. We then use a 3D imaging scan system to capture the image, and a software program to reduce its size and help our machine carve it out. We then go back and hand work each carving to give it that extra detail that a machine just can't reproduce. That way, even though it is a reproduction of a master, it still has the hand touch characteristics. K & M Crafts of Kentucky
