Traditional Wood Carving by Hank Chiappetta


Hand Carved Fireplace Mantels, Tables. and even Dugout Boats. I take lot of time to carve my larger works. All my works are carved by hand. They are hand carved in hard woods the old way, with mallet and chisel. Willie Smyth Washington. Art counsel said, “Your work is very impressive and the websites are well done. We recognize wood carving and wood sculpture as a valuable folk art that represents use of Natural materials from our state. I look forward to sharing your websites with others.”

I think that the northwest is my pallet. The leaves and the trees they hang on, the mountains and the rivers, the sky at sunset. The fish and the bears, the birds that grip the clouds between the sun and the earth; the spirits the of the forest and legends.
