Miniature Bobwhite Quail in Flight
Eddie Wozny (b. 1959)
Cambridge, MD, 2011
A pair of bobwhite quail with detailed wing and tail feather carving, signed and dated by the maker on the bottom of the base which measures 14.5 inches tall. Eddie Wozny, a native of Maryland's Eastern Shore, is a professional wood-carver and wildlife conservationist. His interest in woodcarving stems from his appreciation of wildlife and the environment as well as his enjoyment of working with his hands. After receiving a degree in Biological Sciences from Salisbury State College, his interests compelled him to try to reproduce the abundance he saw in nature. Basically self-taught, Wozny developed his own techniques and unique carving style. Without detailed carving and texturing, his works convey realism and capture the movement of his subjects.
