When commissioned by collectors, Terry Alby welcomes the opportunity to create personalized WoodART.
This personalization can take many forms.
WoodART created from wood brought by the collector to Terry for enhancement is automatically personalized, due to its deep connection with the collector. Examples might include family heirlooms; stumps, roots, logs, or burls from the family farm; or wood harvested from your land and cured for keepsakes to be made later and displayed in a structure on the property.
Proud of his WoodART, Terry delights in signing and dating his works.
Terry enjoys working with collectors to personally design WoodART to fit their desires. This collector/artist collaboration can happen with wood brought to Terry from the collector, with cured wood from Terry’s stockroom, or from Terry’s inventory of partially-completed WoodART pieces. The collaboration process often starts with collectors searching Terry’s WoodART Gallery to spark ideas for creating a personalized work.
For WoodART purchased as presents for others, Terry is happy to permanently burn into the piece your personalized message. If requested, he can help you craft the message. Personalized messages might recognize an important milestone, express love or appreciation, or be humorous, witty, or wry.
Finally, Terry offers classes in woodturning and woodcarving to help people create the most-personalized projects – works from their own hands. Due to the dangerous nature of creating fractal figures in wood, Terry will not conduct classes on Electrified WoodART.
