About my work…

Wood Carving


My name is August Crass and I have always been fascinated by woodworking. I discovered Cottonwood bark carving during the four years I lived in Alaska, and began experimenting with hand chisels following the birth of my first daughter. Traditionally known as ‘Tree Spirits’, my artwork twists the traditional by including designs of old bearded men, monsters, skulls, pacific island heads, or anything that I may see hiding in the wood grain. I seal them with a natural mix of oils and beeswax.
