Russell Scott Santa Claus Carvings
From Saint Paul, Minnesota Russell has been carving since 1999. Russell's woodcarvings are made by hand. They are a one of-a-kind art that take many hours or even days to create. Woodcarvings are affordable art that provide beauty, warmth, inspiration, or whimsy to your life. The unique nature of the wood often determines the direction of the art. Woodcarving, or whittling, is an early art form with a long tradition. My aim is to tell a story with each piece that I carve, whether it is a jolly Santa bearing gifts, a reverent angel, a determined cowboy, or a Civil War figure expressing allegiance to his beliefs.
