Driftwood Art - The Drifters or Natural Santas Created  by Mary Elton Wilkerson

I have always love driftwood art and coastal art involving the ocean or beach.  Walking on the beaches is one of my favorite past times.  For years I have collected sea glass, shells and other wonderful things off the beach.  I am not sure how I got started carving driftwood but I love creating Santas and other images from pieces of wood I find on the beach.  Actually I just loved carved art and handmade crafts.

When I pick up a piece of driftwood it speaks to me.  Of course I don’t mean literally but the driftwood does have a creative voice.  When I look at the driftwood I can see a face in the wood.  Sounds a little strange to see faces in wood but it is my reality.  

The DRIFTERS or as some call them Natural Santas are special little creatures designed for your enjoyment and imagination.  I know you will enjoy having one of these guys as a conversation piece and decoration.

My husband has a wild imagination.  He explained that long ago a Spanish treasure ship left port and sailed around the horn of Africa headed for the port of San Fransisco.  The journey went well until ship encounter rough weather off the central coast of California.  The ship sank and all of Spanish sailors were lost in the cold waters of the Central Atlantic. 

It is said the souls of those dead sailors drifted through the paths of sea looking for a way to reach land.  Eventually the dead sailors discover they could embed their spirits into driftwood in hopes the wood would reach land. 

Mary tells me she can see faces in the driftwood she gathers.  Could those faces she sees be the lost souls off that Spanish ship?  I don't know but I do believe the driftwood art, the Drifters, Mary Elton Wilkerson carves are incrediably unique and have a way of reaching into your own soul.  If you are looking for a great piece of coastal art you have certainly
Come to the right website.

I told you my husband had a large imagination.  Truthfully, I don't think sailors souls are in the wood but I do love the idea of making driftwood
out of the wood I find on the beach.
