Ron Dombrowski starts out with blocks of wood using Jersey white cedar, pine and basswood and after much cutting, grinding and sanding he then paints the piece using acrylic paints and applying protective finishes.
Ron has won numerous awards, including best in show in both the shorebird and fish decoy contests held at the Tuckerton Decoy Show in September each year.
Ron carves old style gunning decoys, duck decoys, ice spearing fish decoys and decorative fish. He also carves folk art owls and fish. Who could resist this wide eyed owl?

I recently saw some primitive bird carvings and was inspired to see what I could find with google. These bird sculptures are just perfect! I hope that I may be able to create some birds that have this sensibility.
