This wood sculpture of a Blue Jay has been hand carved from a single piece of basswood and painted using an airbrush to achieve the delicate color gradations.

These colorful birds are noisy but beautiful birds seen in the eastern part of the U.S.

The carved figurine is about 7 x 13 x 2 centimeters, or 3 x 5 x 1 inches.

Thank you for looking at this sculpture, which is entirely designed and created by artist Sandra Healy; if you have any questions, please click the contact button below.

Here is what has been said about my Blue Jay carving: Beautiful coloring and just beautifully made! Really fast shipping.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Though my animal carvings are only about an inch thick, I use various carving and painting techniques to suggest a much rounder figure. It is a unique method which I have developed since I started in 1975.

My sculptures come into fruition only when combined with the mind of the viewer. My challenge is to give you, the viewer, what you need to fill in the details of texture and roundness with your mind. This has been successful judging from what collectors of my art say.

HOW I WORK: Rather than using a power carver, I enjoy using knives and chisels to finish shaping the basswood. As well as being quiet and meditative, this gives crisper details.

After sanding the animal smooth, I use an airbrush to paint the colors. Finally, 3 coats of water-based urethane are brushed on, and the sculpture is signed on the bottom.

Materials Used

wood, basswood, paint, ink, urethane finish
