Unlike any other part of the process, the flower carving is completely unique in one aspect: we turn off the clock and let ourselves recklessly create a flower that comes to mind. The amount of time spent doesn't matter, because the time and effort is not used in any cost calculations. The flower carving is a gift from us to the individual that provides our piece a home. Although it is not seen unless you pick up the piece and turn it over... it is a hidden gift of beauty that provides a concealed surprise. No two flower carvings are alike...
Once the flower carving is completed, we sign the piece with our names and designate the species of wood. It is then sanded and sealed and ready for the next step in the process.
