Moonstone Beach Driftwood Carvings
Moonstone Beach in Cambria,
California is Mary's favorite picking ground for those special pieces
driftwood used to create her spectacular driftwood carvings. Mary
actually collects driftwood from beaches in Oregon and
Washington. She lived in Cambria for 13 years but has relocated
to the beautiful state of Oregon.
This wonderfully beautiful stretch
of beach on the Central Coast of California is a great place to enjoy
walking, surfing, or just relax and watch the sunset.
Mary loves to take driftwood
on the beaches around
her home and carve driftwood Santas, Snowmen,Santa Ornaments, Crosses,
Signs, Sea Birds and other fantastic pieces. No doubt, you will
love to add one of Mary Elton Wilkerson's pieces to your
collection. Her pieces make wonderful gifts for any occasion.
The Joy of Walking the Beach!
Mary enjoys her walks on the
beach as much as she does carving her pieces from the moonstone beach
driftwood. When walking the beach she also finds moonstones, sea
glass and many other sea items she uses to decorate her pieces.
She tells me her heart is free and in touch with God when searching the
beach for her treasures.
Mary has been carving for years but enjoys the complete
process. The gathering of materials is only the beginning of her
enjoyment. She tells me the driftwood speaks to her. She
sees the piece in her mind before she brings it home. It is
really cool to watch the process. She gets so excited over one
piece of wood. Her face lights up every time she walks Moonstone
Beach and finds that special piece of wood.
Driftwood Santas, Ornaments, Snowmen, Sea Birds, and More!
Beach Driftwood Carving are only the tip of the ice berg for
Mary. She also carves a lot of pieces from Minnesota Bass
wood. The little fellow below to the right is a hand carved Santa
holding a Christmas tree. He is carved from Minnesota Bass wood.
Hand Carved Santa
The remarkable thing about Mary's carvings is the time she spends
perfecting each piece. She works hours and hours getting each
aspect of the piece just right for her customers.
Carving Driftwood is one of her favorite types of wood because process
involves long, peaceful walks on Moonstone Beach. She
also combs beaches in other areas long the Central Coast of California
but she enjoys Moonstone because it is close to her home in Cambria.
