Scott Crocker has been carving original and life size human, wildlife, and fantasy figures, as well as elaborately carved and rustic modern furniture for over 28 years. Scott sells to individuals and collectors and participates in juried shows and competitions nationwide winning awards and recognition for his talent. He also exhibits in Vermont galleries.

Based out of Plainfield, Vermont, Scott draws inspiration from the abundant wildlife and natural shapes and designs in the fields, woods, ponds, and rivers that surround his home. 

Scott specializes in the unique and the unusual. He gives each carving the same care and attention to detail, enjoying the challenge that comes with every new idea. Environmentally conscientious, he uses local and salvaged woods and non-toxic finishes where possible or if requested.
