Forest Folk | Sitting Reading Man

This little guy is SOLD! If you’d like one, just email to let me know. No two of any of my nature art is ever exactly alike, but I will send pictures for your approval with your invoice. If you’re not happy, just let me know and we’ll cancel the order. No risk on your part, and it’s not wasted time on mine. If you opt not to take it, I’ll relist it here. Sitting Reading Man Forest Folk of Wild Ozark.



Sitting Reading Man is a one-of-a-kind (OOAK) Wild Ozark Forest Folk. He is “twig art” and made from nature.

Forest Folk are crafted by hand from things found or wildcrafted from the Wild Ozark land. Acorns, bark, moss, lichens, and tiny bits of twisted vines or sticks are all treasures. It’s all held together with a bit of glue. Sometimes I accent pieces with metal, beads, or paper.

Sitting Reading Man features an acorn head with milkweed fluff hair, covered with an acorn cap. His body and legs and arms are twigs.

He sits on a ladderback chair made of twigs with dried wildflower accents on the back posts.

Sitting Reading Man Forest Folk from Wild Ozark

First Hunt by Ima ErthwitchPredator and Prey, or the hunter and the hunted is a common theme throughout my fiction writing. No Qualms, one of my short stories (free at most retailers) is about about a predator/prey relationship. Symbiosis, my first finished novel, not published yet, deals with predator/prey relationships and the balance of energy among life on earth, sometimes symbolic and often outright. Many of my flash fiction stories (I have twitterfiction and 100-word flash stories) are also dealing with this same dynamic. This is a strong theme that runs through most of my fiction and is strongly influenced by life in the wild Ozarks where we live. My first published novel, First Hunt, also has a predator and prey theme to it. I guess it's just part of my nature.

Nature Farming

Wild Ozark is 160 acres of beautiful wild Ozark mountains. I call what I do "nature farming" because the land produces, all by itself, the shagbark hickory trees, ferns, moss, ground-fall botanicals, and the perfect habitats for growing and stewarding American ginseng. I'm co-creating with Nature - all of the things I use to make the Fairy Gardens and Forest Folk, the bark we harvest for Burnt Kettle's shagbark hickory syrup, are produced by nature without my input. This land is my muse for inspiration when it comes to my writing, drawing, and photography. It's truly a Nature Farm.
