WOOD CARVING FLORENCE, OREGON / "BEST WOOD CARVINGS ON THE COAST"

What Heffy Does


Dan “Heffy” Heffron creates wood carvings that are almost lifelike. His attention to detail is second to none. He has taught himself over the past 40+ years and actually makes most of his tools himself. This allows him to produce the painstaking details that truly define his work. He does not use any paints, stains, or glass eyes with his work. The coloration he achieves is a real testament to his abilities.

Wood sculptures by Heffy are each unique, one-of-a-kind creations hand carved from a single piece of wood (unless stated otherwise), and often inspired by the aquatic wildlife found here on the Oregon central coast. He takes great pleasure in hunting for burls of driftwood washed up on the local beaches because that wood can arrive from anywhere in the world and he never knows what kind of wood he will find. He also takes pride in never staining any of the carvings he creates, instead polishing the colors out of them or burning them in with one of the nearly 300 specialized carving tools he has modified or created in his 40+ years as an artist.

What is burl wood?

Below are some of his works. Some are for sale (shown on the details page). You can also contact him for custom commissioned work.

Heffy also has some of his work on display, and for sale, at the very interesting The His & Hers Shoppe in Depoe Bay, OR. Stop in for a visit or check out their online store.
