Apple Festival at Albemarle Ciderworks

In November, Mark and I headed up the road to Vintage Virginia Apples and Albemarle Ciderworks for their day-long festival. The event was nestled in one of the older apple orchards on the east side of the mountain near the tasting room. It was  a beautiful, crisp, bright and cool late fall day. We enjoyed looking at the work of all the other artisans and craftsmen. There was a great variety of clothing, jewelry, home and garden decor, herbs, oils, vinegar, jams, teas, soap and scents. The food...

2013 Virginia Wine and Garlic Festival

It's almost time for the 2014 Virginia Wine and Garlic Festival at Rebec Vineyards in Amherst. We'll be there, and here are some pictures from last year. The rain never did completely go away but the popular event still had a great crowd. We made new friends and got to see some of our clients and friends from the previous year. Mark carved  about two dozen pumpkins in various shapes and sizes. They were rustic in style and burnt with a torch to give it the dark accents and shading. They look great...

Nelson Community Day

Nelson Community Day

We participated in Nelson Community Day at Oak Ridge Estate this spring. Mark did a few chainsaw carving demos and we sold several of our smaller owls and met many great people. Overall a great day except for a rogue gust of wind that sent our pop-up tent sailing and crashing in a crumpled mess.

Two Owls Carved for a Wedding

We just said goodbye to this adorable pair of owls as their new owner picked them up for his wedding where they'll be a centerpiece display. We loved them so much that Mark carved a second pair which will be finished in the next week.

The Wedding Gift

This spring Mark carved a pair of very unique sculptures for Jason, the owner of Big Secret, a laser etching and cutting business in Richmond, as a surprise wedding present for his new bride. One sculpture has a bear body and a bird head; the other has a bird body and a bear head. The sculptures represent the couples love of bears (the bride's ring has a custom bear design), and the bride's name is Bird. Mark delivered the sculptures to Smith Mountain Lake, where the wedding took place, and where...

Arbor Day in Lynchburg

Arbor Day in Lynchburg

Mark did a chainsaw carving demo at Arbor Day in Lynchburg. Thanks to the city and the Arbor Day committee for including us! Mark roughed in a bear and drew in a crowd. A couple of the black bears, one of the tiki totems and the Orca were on display. The Orca was popular with the kids and enthusiasm and spirits were high all-around for Mark's sculptures and demonstration. One of the tikis now lives at Caspian Tattoo in Lynchburg!

Three New Bears from the Urban Art Show

You might not think to find bears at an urban art show, but that is exactly what happened. Thanks to being a part of a group of talented Lynchburg friends (thanks Skull Fly!), Sleepy Hollow Art made an appearance at the 1st Urban Art Show at Catalano's. Three new bears, the bald eagle, the owl, and the whale all traveled to Main St. for the art show.  Urban Art Show, Downtown Lynchburg The New Bears: Kenneth, Lucinda and Marx Lucinda Carved out of reclaimed Southern Yellow Pine,...
