Description

Nature has always been an important part of Tony’s life. He worked for 30 years with the animals at the WNC Nature Center, and has had an interest in bird carving since he was a teenager. Edsel Martin, renowned whittler, was one of Tony’s first carving teachers. “Edsel showed me how to carve birds; he’d carve half a bird and give it to me and let me carve the other side. I learned quite a bit about carving birds from Edsel.”

The piece is beautiful. I received a bluebird carved ornament from a friend after my mother died - it means so much to me. A colleague’s mother passed away this spring and I paid it forward - she and her mother were also bird lovers! Thank you.
