~~~~~~~

This piece is an avocado stone (seed/pip/pit), with traits similar to a dense wood material. It is a natural item which means that its appearance may change over time. This depends on the conditions you keep it in and the climate and humidity of where you live. I have preserved it by drying out the stone thoroughly and treating the surface with natural oil and wax. You can expect the lifespan to be similar to that of a wooden object - when kept in the correct conditions it will last indefinitely. The figurine should be displayed indoors, out of direct sunlight, in dry conditions. Dust occasionally with a soft haired brush or cloth.

Pricing
These carvings are the result of days, weeks and often months of careful work. Each avocado stone carving is a once-off that won't be recreated. It is difficult to put a monetary price on one's own creations, and I have put a lot of thought into the pricing as well as seeking external advice. I am happy for my creations to go to a home with those who value my work as I do. Those who love my work enough to buy it are my sponsors who let me continue being creative. I am eternally grateful for the support. I'm aware that not everyone can afford the prices I ask for (just as I cannot carve enough pieces for everyone who would like one) but I frequently share images of my work on Instagram and Facebook which I hope everyone can enjoy.
