Lisa M. Narloch – Artist
Wood Owl Original Designs
Hello. I am the Wood Owl artist and owner of Wood Owl Original Designs. My art is crafted from locally found, gifted and reclaimed woods to give a tree a second life. Whether from a woodpile, a gift from a friend, or rescued from the chipper or wood stove, I cut, work and shape each piece into unique art and finish it by hand with techniques designed to enhance the beauty of the wood. For finishing, I use 100% food grade oils and waxes so you can lick the bowls if you want to. Special care is taken with each piece to keep it as natural as possible.
My unique works are borne of a desire to stay close to nature and to keep the soul of a tree alive through each piece I design. Drawn to the imperfect, unusual, weathered or broken, my art embraces the idea of breathing new life into wood and extending the life of a tree.
ONE GOOD TURN DESERVES ANOTHER….
If you gift wood or a part of a tree to me, I will craft for you a special piece of art from that gift. And 10% of all sales from the rest of the wood is donated to a local non-profit. I once had a lady send me 100 lbs of Crepe Myrtle from North Carolina to create and sell art for her special cause. I have also received wood from Florida, California, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii. For more fun, check out where my art has gone here by following this link. where in the world is my art?
Donations of art will also be offered to non-profits for annual fundraising silent auctions. Have a fundraiser coming up? Let me know and we can discuss the best way to promote art for your cause. It is a fantastic way to connect with the community and share art.
I create. You buy. We donate.
