Since Christmas Del has been creating new pieces for the shop. Usually he has a theme - flowers, animals, etc. But this year he has chosen to make a variety of things; sailboat, wreath, lillies, snake and this penguin. "Penguins" is a reminder of his trip to Antarctica in 2008 where he saw thousands of King Penguins with their chicks, just as this piece depicts. The penguin stands 16" tall and is 8" wide and is made of Walnut, Pine, Denim Pine, Yellow Cedar, Alder, Yew and Ebony. Come into the shop quickly before someone takes them home!
