Santa Nick – Hand Carved Basswood and Painted Santa – 11 inch
Santa Nick spends most of his days in the workshop getting ready for the most important night in the year. One thing Nick knows for sure is how wonderful it is to spend a little time every day being with his little friend, Callie. Anytime Santa Nick is ready for a break, Callie follows him to their special spot for a quick nap and then it’s back to business as usual. Santa Nick is 10½” tall.
Each Tiger Claus creation begins with northern Basswood, imagination and the knives and carving gouges in R.L. Owen’s hands. Once the carving and detailing are complete, each piece is painted and finished by Barb Owen who acts as scribe for the stories whispered to her by each Santa. Once 40-60 hours have been invested, each Tiger Claus Carving is finished and ready to go to its forever home.
