Cowbot Hat style Walnut Platter

Minimal Embellishment

Terry Alby’s Carved Wood ART is seemingly simple and uses minimal embellishment. He chooses this aesthetic for his carved work – doing as little manipulation to the wood as possible – because he finds it hard to improve on nature.

Much like Ernest Hemingway, whose understated writing style influenced art throughout Terry’s formative years, Terry believes "You never really finish Carved Wood ART. You stop while there is still something natural to the piece, allowing others to complete the work in their minds and hearts, based on their connections to nature."

Wood Availability

When ordering or commissioning a piece of WoodART from Terry, please remember that some wood may be available immediately for production. Specific wood you are looking for might be available in his inventory, or might need to be ordered from other wood suppliers or possibly found in a natural wooded area and then dried for a period of time prior to creation of the piece.
