Fried Al

Somerset, Ky, KY



Al Fried, creates one-of-a-kind pieces using native Kentucky wood from tree tops left by loggers or felled by the wind. Al selects specimens with intricate grain patterns and vivid colors, then shapes smoothes, seals, and polishes the sculpted pieces using a unique multi-step process. He creates pieces in a variety of forms including Vases, Bowls, Goblets, Plates and Sculpture in dimensions up to 35 inches in diameter and 10 feet in length. Al's objective is to display the natural beauty of our local heartwoods in a pleasing and classic form.

Custom Orders are taken if a certain size, shape or color scheme is needed to fit a certain decor. However it must be remembered when dealing with natural wood and individually made creations that no two pieces are exactly alike.
