Northern Wildlife in Wood

Carving Gallery

My name is John Nelson. Carving is my full-time occupation and passion, and has been since about 1980. I make my home on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, a beautiful and rugged land. Each of my carvings is a one-of-a-kind, hand carved and individually painted work of love. All creations are carved of native Alaska Spruce, cut here on the Kenai Peninsula by small, privately owned sawmills. Each finished work is signed and dated, and carries the "Made In Alaska" logo of authenticity. No two pieces are alike, each an individual creation reflecting the spirit and wonder of the North Land. Unlike mass-produced carvings currently being marketed, my shop houses no duplicating machines, no airbrushes, no imported wood. All my work is done by hand, one-at-a-time.

Please browse through the photos of my creations. It is my pleasure to share with you carvings of some of the Arctic wildlife that graces the mountains and woodlands of my homeland. From the little Chickadee to the lordly Brown Bear, each specie finds a home in this wild part of the world, and can now live in your home. All my carvings are sold with a guarantee of your satisfaction and the understanding that you may return anything for a refund if you aren't completely pleased. We accept personal checks or money orders. We also ship USPS Priority Mail, the fastest and least expensive way from Alaska.

Carving Gallery

"It's the great, big broad land 'way up yonder,'
It's the forests where silence has lease;
It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder,
It's the stillness that fills me with peace."
