David Sabol wooden Santas
David's woodcarving career began as an eight-year old's hobby. His carving ability improved throughout high school and college. Today he is a highly respected carver, teacher and woodcarving author. His self-taught skills range from caricature, animal, bird and flower carvings to human form sculptures. He is a traditional carver who uses knives, chisels and oil stains to create his outstanding works. There is a unique quality to his carving that has enabled many collectors and students of woodcarving to identify his works at first sight. He is noted for his realistic wonderfully charismatic expressions. Since becoming a full-time carver in 1983, David has received many "Best of Show" awards at carving shows and wildlife art exhibitions and he has authored several books that have received high acclaim in the woodcarving community.
Residing in Pennsylvania, David's works have appeared in numerous Newspaper and magazine publications throughout New England and the mid-Atlantic states. David's wonderfully creative and whimsical Santas are sure to bring a smile to any Santa lover's face. He draws his ideas from life experiences, noticing the unusual, making mental notes and later transferring them into his woodcarvings.
