SOLD  Blacksmith At Work By Andre Laporte


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

Andre Laporte was born in Verdun, Quebec on May 20th, 1948. Laporte started carving in 1984 after deeply pondering his first piece - a horse. His work is truly inspired and highly individual. "I first see the form in the log and then I carve until I get it all out". No added pieces, no superfluous sanding or refining. Only the pure essential. This rare technique is the essence of Laporte's distinctive and unique style. This signed work was produced in the early 90's. Excellent condition. 8" wide, 10" deep, 19" tall.
