Now, as a carver of small wooden sculptural objects, netsuke, and ojime,
Janel Jacobson is exploring the potential of hardwoods and other carveable materials
such as stag antler, amber and fossil ivory, all of which may also be used for inlay.
Using wood to add a warmth and vitality to her subjects that comes from within
the material itself, Janel continues to find inspiration in nature.

In 2009 Janel began using a small lathe, with hopes for turning forms for carving upon. Exploration was begun in 2011 with turned and carved pieces, and in 2012 she began to make some carved pieces that are wearable as necklaces or pins, or that could be worn either way.
