The Pit Heads

The faces and objects pictured below are carved from the pits of fruit such as peach, plum, apricot, olive, sweet cherry, wild cherry and even the seed from the dogwood tree. I hope that you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed carving them!

These are some of my recent carvings!

The two on the left are wild cherry and sweet cherry pits. The two on the right are olive pits!
