Ed Pribyl

Ed’s work is well known for its level of detail, warm antiqued finish, and nostalgic subject matter. All of his designs are original, and are either extremely limited editions or one of a kind. Every one of Ed’s Santa carvings begins with a idea, sometimes drawn from old photos, vintage advertisements, or antiques. Usually though, ideas are based on his broad love for nostalgic Americana. Each piece is carved one at a time, using a combination of hand tools and some power tools to achieve his signature look. Ed starts the design process with a quick sketch, then a bit of research before he starts a carving.
