Tempus fugit, opera manent

It is with heavy heart and no small amount of tears that I must share the sad news of my father's death. Dad left us on Friday, but his spirit remains in the lives he touched and in the beautiful artworks he shared with the world through Kentucky Snow. I am so grateful to everyone who supported Dad in his passion for creating these beautiful ornaments over the past 21 years. It meant so much to Dad.

Because of Dad's passing, Kentucky Snow cannot accept new orders at this time. My brother and I are assessing where to go from here, but at this point I do not know what or when I will have more to tell you.

Thank you for your thoughts and understanding,

My snowflakes are an exceptionally fine gift. They are jewel-like because of the way I use the grain to create a beautiful starburst effect.

They are thin and delicate. Ten of them weigh only one ounce, making them ideal Christmas tree decorations. They are about 4" in diameter and about 1/16" thick; and have a clear finish to enhance the natural colors of the wood.

Each ornament is packaged in a gold gift box and includes a tag describing the wood and a card explaining how to care for it.

I create a new design each year. There are now over 40 designs currently available, as well as Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri ,Ohio, and West Virginia state ornaments made of woods native to each state, my snowflake jewel boxes Crystal Jewel Box, the Trinity Stand and Icicles. Thank you for visiting my web site.

A speaker at a conference once explained the wood talks to him and lets him know what to carve.
