Artisans - Robert Adams
Robert has had a compelling interest in wildlife art for the better
part of his life. As a relatively self-taught artist, he strives to bring
out the beauty and life of the bird in his carvings. Each piece is
signed and dated as all work is an original and one-of-a-kind.
Beginning with a block of wood and chisel, Robert painstakingly cuts
away the unwanted wood. After the shape is completed, the feather
pattern is then relief carved. The feathers are burned into the wood and
painted with artist oils. The legs and feet are made from copper wire for
strength and stability. The bases are made from hardwoods, driftwood
and, on occasion, stone.
He was awarded Best of Show in the Western Heritage Art Rendezvous in
Englewood, Colorado, and has participated in the Alamo Kiwanis Club
Western Art Show in San Antonio, Texas, Wood as Fine Art in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, Governor’s Invitational Art Show in North Platte, Nebraska,
as well as several art and wood carving shows in Colorado, Pennsylvania,
Texas and Oklahoma. Robert has been a member of Ducks Unlimited and
has contributed his art for their annual fund raising events. He has
been a member of the Duncan Art Guild for five years and has held an
executive board position for two of those years. He has numerous pieces of
art in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
Robert’s artistry speaks for itself in each and every wood carving he
