We introduced you to Paul Baliker a couple of blogs ago. We were so interested and excited by what we saw that on Saturday we traveled to Paul Balikers Studio on the Palm Coast, 40 miles north of Daytona Beach.
We will start with his business card, for anyone interested in more information. The web site is http://www.paulbaliker.com phone 386-446-0069.
His works run the range of single simple woodcarvings, (for those in Minnesota it does not incorporate bears chainsawed out of trees), to many intricate designs with many elements carved into a large single piece of work. From wood carvings to bronze pieces.
We took many pictures and feel we need to do several blogs to truly do his work justice, so this will be one of multiple blogs on his works.
Starting at the entrance the size and scope of several of his works capture such imagination and creativity that we will begin by focusing on them today.
In this one he starts with the tree trunk and includes the roots. How many carvings can you see incorporated into the sculptures. We will give you several photo’s to look at.
Now take your time and look closely. A hint Some are on the back of the sculpture. We have several more defining photo’s next. We thought of adding the others tomorrow but we will give you all the photo’s we have of this sculpture today.
This is just one of his sculptures outside before you enter his studio. We will continue tomorrow. Come along with us for another scavenger hunt.
