Celebrating 30 years in business 1991-2021
John Hoesman, the Carving Fool
Welcome to my website! If you are searching for hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind gifts, a special piece of artwork for your home, or a colorful pin to wear with that new jacket, I may be able to help.
The galleries on the following web pages show samples of my woodcarvings, including caricatures of coaches and famous and not-so-famous people, pins and refrigerator magnets, and ornaments and other hand-carved items. For those of you looking for something to hang on the wall, I also offer paintings and drawings, samples of which are shown in separate galleries on this site.
I try to make ordering as simple as possible for you and will do my best to meet your deadlines. Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you find your visit enjoyable.
This week at "The Works," January 17 - 23, 2021.
Highlights for this week include: carvings of Notre Dame Coach Knute Rockne (shown at left with Frank Leahy), Ohio State/ Cincinnati Coach Luke Fickell, Ohio State Coach Francis Schmidt, and Ohio State Coach Wes Fesler. I also will work on a custom order woodcarving. In addition, I will continue work on a couple of paintings and charcoal and pen-and-ink drawings.
