What people are saying about Carved By The Sea….

“The Committee would like to commend you on your distinctive body of work that shows a true sensitivity to the natural materials you use.   The committee was struck by the graceful and charming forms you were able to create with found wood.  It is impressive how you are able to blend your carved forms in with the natural textures and character of the wood.  The committee found your work to be highly accomplished and whimsical—the perfect addition to any collection.”

“Just wanted to let you know that “Ocean” arrived in the mail today.  – No damage, thanks to the good packaging!  Ocean is settling into his new home and looks quite spectacular!—I hope your business continues to flourish- I think that it will, given that the driftwood art is beautiful and unique”

“I must tell you the last work which I purchased, was a gift to my friend who was with me when we visited Cape Breton last fall-it brought tears to her eyes when she opened the package and saw it.  She named it ‘Bert’.”

“Thanks so much to you and AJ for making Doug’s gift possible.”


“I ordered one of your lovely birds tonight online.  My Mom was at the designer craft fair this weekend and raved about your lovely craftsmanship and how if my Dad was still alive how they would have bought one of your pieces. She would have wanted one, but would never treat herself, so I decided to buy one for her for Christmas.”
