Charlie Buzby’s carvings tell a story of beauty in simplicity, love of nature, and of patience. In his home studio in New Harbor, Maine, Buzby finds inspiration in the natural world, shore birds, owls, whales and fish being his primary subjects. The carvings are then carefully mounted on pieces of driftwood found on walks along Pemaquid Beach. Each piece is unique in character and no two are alike. Part of the joy in his work is to create new and individual creations, each with their own charm.
A self taught artisan, he picked up the craft after meeting woodcarver JIm Bolf while on a family vacation. He was inspired to learn and strengthen the skill of his new hobby over the years. After retiring in 2008 he was able to devote more time to his art. Buzby set up a woodcarving studio at his home allowing more space to create.
Made from Basswood from Wisconsin, which is harder than the more commonly used balsa or pine. Charlie Buzby’s classic and whimsical forms will grace your mantle or shelf for years to come.
