Testimonials


I required to have a 75 year old tree removed from near my entrance. The trunk had split into 3 near the base. I had a dream for owls. After consulting with Shlomit she commenced work. I enjoyed watching the birth of the owls. I was amazed at the speed of this project, very happy with the consulting with me during the craving and so happy and amazed with the end result. I found Shlomit very respectful and honourable which was very important to me as this is my home.I love my owls. Thank you Shlomit."

I first met Shlomit Moria at a Mentoring Clinic at the Warburton Enterprise Centre. At the end of the Mentoring Session I visited Shlomit Workshop and was captivated by her Talent and Art work, I was so impressed I sent information on Shlomit work to my Family and Friends. We had a 130 Year Old Japanese Maple Tree in our Front Yard that had died several years ago, so Judy and I commissioned Shlomit to turn the Stump of the Tree into some Art of our Grandchildren using her Unique Chainsaw Sculpture. Shlomit’s work was Outstanding, she Transformed a ugly old Stump into a great work of Art, a Fairy Castle with Owls, Toadstools and loads of Characters, our Grandchildren play around the Fairy Castle when they visit they love it and have built a small play area around the Sculpture. We can highly Recommend Shlomit Moira as a very Talented, Creative and hard working person, we are happy to People to visit and look at the Art, and we will be delighted to give our Recommendation of a job well done, on time and on Budget. We are sure Shlomit will delight and captivate her Customers and Reward then if they work with her."

Totem Magic We had an idea some years ago to harvest a tall eucalypt from the forest gully on our block in Warburton. Our aim was to create two totems from the approximately 8 m pole as a centrepiece sculpture of a new garden we are planning, a secret garden down the slope from our new home. We cut the tree in 2016 while the house was under construction from a small area that needed to be cleared to meet bushfire planning regulations. The pole lay in the bush for two years while we designed two totems that represented our family and our love of the bush and the forest that we live in. The totems are angels with symbols of ancient earth functions such as wind and fire and spirituality. At our yoga class we met a lady who had hired Shlomit Moria from Bushwood Creations to make an owl wood sculpture. We met with Shlomit at her workshop in Warburton and immediately realised this was the person to create our angel totems. Her workshop is a place of beauty and industry wonderfully combined. Shlomit came to our house and examined our design ideas and came back with wonderful detailed wood carving and metalwork design drawings of the two totems which we agreed implement. The pole was cut into two unequal lengths, we stripped the bark and Shlomit transported the two poles to her workshop for treatment and carving. Shlomit hired a well know blacksmith Dietmar Fleckhammer to make the metal parts to the sculpture while beginning the work of carving the cypress angel wings and the poles. The art work progressed rapidly and at the same time we all put our minds to the installation process and how we would place the totems in the ground. The sculpture pieces were completed to the point where the sculpture could be placed onto the carved poles onsite on the day of installation. We hired a hole digger and completed two 80 cm deep holes with the assistance of artist Sioux Dollman, a friend of Shlomit’s who lives up the road from us, and who has many artistic skills included creating concrete sculptures, one of which is her own house in the style of Gaudi. What a team! Installation day went well, we chose and were rewarded with a calm sunny day in mid winter. Shlomit's husband Edo provided construction and strategic expertise on the day and we successfully concreted the totems in place where they will remain for centuries to come hopefully as a representation of the wonders of life and planet Earth. Thank you Shlomit and team for you artistic ability and wood carving design and sculpture skills, and your practical abilities for the installation of the sculpture. Thank you again Shlomit, Sioux, Dietmar Fleckhammer and Edo. Chris and Greg Terrens Warburton, Victoria, Australia. All we are saying is give peace a chance."
