Bird's Of My Hollow

Lynne and Ron Kemper keep alive the tradition of Claude Kemper's carved birds. This wonderful educational dispay is housed in the historic Little Kanawha Valley Bank.

In 2002, Claude taught daughter-in-law Lynne his carving and painting techniques. After Claude's death, Lynne is keeping his craft alive.

Following are examples of the "Bird's Of My Hollow" collection.

Here is Lynne's latest creation - a Cerulean Warbler.

The Cedar Waxwings are feeding on serviceberry.

I love Lynne's skill! Here is a carved grouse feather. It looks as if this feather just dropped off a live grouse!
