Heron Carved Front Door: Fine Art Quality Hand Wood Carvings
We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind entrances that properly represent your personality and accomplishments. All of our custom doors are designed by, and built under the supervision of award winning artist H.J Nick. This creative, heron carved front door is prime example of an H.J. Nick design brought to life by our master wood carvers. The heron and the beach and shoreline scene, are detailed, high relief carvings by one master's hands. This door, and every carved door from ArtFactory.com is a unique, work of art that will never be exactly reproduced. The heron carved front door as shown, is made from thick, solid cedar cypress, but all wood types are available. Like any of our custom door designs it can be built for exterior or interior use. This is also the perfect design to customize with one of our popular nature theme doors pulls, such as the matching custom cattail door pull pictured. Like with all of our doors, your hardware is fully customizable, and these doors can be fitted with any handle of your choosing.
The stately heron surveys the stream for prey in this custom wooden door. Herons are found all over the world, usually on the shoreline of any body of water, as fish are a large part of their diet. Herons are solitary birds, rarely traveling in a flock, making them somewhat harder to notice if they are not out in the open. You may see them frequently wading in the water off the shore, but sometimes you may have to hunt to find them as they often are hidden within the rushes and reeds that grow along the shoreline. This wooden door demonstrates the point right in between; when the heron is just emerging from the cattails to enter the water. Our master level wood carvers did simple detailing of the feathers and crest of the heron, and put the bird in high relief to draw the eye. The cattails were spaced carefully so as not to overshadow the star of this carving, but still give the impression of large bunches of reeds. An additional cattail was placed on this custom crafted door in the form of the hand forged cattail door pull. Let this heron emerging from the cattails keep a watchful eye on your home.
Heron Carved Front Door Handmade By Master Woodworkers
The heron carved front door, like all of our custom wood doors, is made from solid, full length timber. Furthermore, each door is constructed with hand hewn, mortise and tenon joinery. The meticulous finish has been done in age old technique, using a 23-step hand rubbed process. We begin with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. That puts the finish in the wood not just sprayed on it. This allows for the fine natural wood grains to show to perfection. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This method is performed on all furniture and door wood surfaces inside and out.
In addition, our high relief hand carving process creates both positive and negative levels. This includes features such as carved out undersides of leaves that cannot be achieved with any machine. When we say master hand carved, we mean carved by the hands of one master wood carver. We do not use CNC machine carving, engage in gang carving, or any other fast process. Direct carvings by the hands of one master carver is especially relevant in the eyes of appraisers when judging a piece as meeting fine art qualifications.
We Do Not Believe In Building Disposable Products
At ArtFactory.com we believe in building furniture and doors that are not something that you just use for a few years and then throw away. Building items that are disposable is a practice that is unique to the past fifty years. In the old world, when a piece of furniture was built, it was built from solid, natural materials by master craftsmen. Most importantly, it was built to last forever. Something like a solid wood entrance door would be passed down through a family for generations along with the home that was also built to last forever.
With this heron carved front door handcrafted from solid cedar cypress, we have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship into the 21st century. A true modern masterpiece inspired by historic designs, and built with period correct methods and materials. We can build a custom solid wood door for you in any wood type that you prefer. We never use particle board, laminates or veneers, when we say wood, we mean "The Genuine Article".
Building A Family Legacy Through Heirloom Doors
Building a family legacy has been going on since the beginning of time. Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality. These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos . Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family. No matter if it’s a simple, hope chest with your personal message or name as a gift to a loved one, or an extravagant, fine art quality, master handcrafted custom heron carved front door, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone.
