About the Artist

 Award winning New Hampshire artist Laury Nichols, fashions whimsical woodland animal characters and other custom woodcarving projects from her  workshop set back in a forest surrounded field in rural Chichester, NH.

Awards include: Best of Class and the prestigious Best of Show at New England Woodcarvers Spirit of Wood Exhibition, the Public Choice Award and Special Award of Merit at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen "Living with Crafts" Exhibition.  An L. Nichols carving of Socks the Cat from the Clinton White House was pictured in Newsweek magazine. Laury's Mayflower Music Box was featured in the "Insight" section of Craft Report Aug., 2003. An L. Nichols Christmas ornament is in the permanent collection of the New Hampshire Historical Society. Laury was part of the design team, and contributed carvings, for the innovative "Enchanted Forest" installation, now a permanent part of the rotunda of intensive care wing of the University of Maryland teaching hospital, Baltimore, MD.

After more than 35 years as a wood carver, this self-taught artist still loves the Wood Carving Process.

 Sly Mr. Fox is made of laminated 2 inch planks of furniture grade, kiln dried basswood. He stands on a natural apple wood base. His head turns, his top hat opens to reveal a secret hiding place. His chest pocket is actually a front for a secret dovetailed drawer.  A removable working walnut pocket watch tucks in his right pocket
