Ever wonder who creates those beautiful wood sculptures you see at the log home shows? Let me introduce you to one very special woman – Korri Walker.
Korri has been an artist all of her life. On vacation in Gatlinburg, Tennesee she watched a chainsaw artist at work and was simply amazed at what was happening. She witnessed a log brought to life in the skilled hands of that artist.
Inspired and interested in a new challenge, Korri took up the art form of sculpting with a chainsaw. Now she spends most of the spring, summer and fall creating sculptures from logs.
Korri does one show a year. The Bedford Fall Festival, located in Bedford Pennsylvania – October 8th & 9th. There she sells her bears, folk art, snowmen and her signature item, Jack-0-Lanterns. She say’s her sculptures make people smile.
Naturally, when folks enter the booth they talk to her husband, Barry first ” Hey buddy, how long to make that bear? Korri simply loves his response “Talk to the artist, she’s right here!”
Barry and Korri Walker have been in the log home industry since building their beautiful log home in 2002. They serve as Log Home Dealers in the Somerset, Cambria, Bedford and Blair County area of Pennsylvania where they are proud to be a part of the Expedition Log Home team.
The Walkers’ use their log home as a model (by appointment only). Give them a call – depending on time of year you just might see a sculpture in progress!
