Vintage Original Mourning Dove Wood Carving - English Harewood on Desert Wood Base - By Hazel Brown of Tubac Arizona 1969
Base 5 1/2" x 4 " Mourning Dove 7" long - In as new condition
English Harewood (or airwood) is a form of maple that is treated to develop a grey or silver gray color or sheen for marquetry. When I was doing my bird wood sculptures it became harder and harder to find. As noted in this carving, the wood had very little grain
Hazel and Ron Brown carved birds out of different woods. I met them when I lived in Tucson and consider them to be my mentors as I began my career sculpting birds combining different rare hardwoods in one sculpture. I also have one of their hummingbird carvings on ETSY
Many of my items are vintage or antique. Most are in excellent condition but I will note if there is something beyond normal wear.
