Original hand carved Santa by Shawn Cipa

Welcome to my website.

I love to carve wood. The texture of the wood under my fingertips, the scent of the wood as I uncover new layers, and the crisp sound of a razor-sharp blade slicing through the fibers; these are the reasons I have chosen this medium of mediums, this gift of God. It is my hope that you gain a sense of these passions through my designs.

I invite you to view my collection of work, some available for purchase, some the result of past private commissions, and all 100% original.  Here you will find hand carved wooden santas, custom carved walking sticks and canes, Wood Spirits, wooden angels, and other unique folk art woodcarvings.
