About Us

Northstar Sculptures is a creative expression of art that comes from upstate NY native, Sara Wojtowecz. For several years now, Sara has been using a chainsaw to carve big (and little) hunks of wood into beautiful carvings of animals and other unique and beautiful shapes. She began when she saw another carver at a show and became interested in learning more about creating art with an incredibly powerful tool.

Today, Sara carves full-time and is also a member of the Chainsaw Chix. The Chix are an all-female carving team that travel and perform the art of chainsaw carving. Sara has had the opportunity to travel to Japan, Australia, Canada and all over the USA. Check the Chix out at www.chainsaw.net.

When not traveling around the country, Sara gets inspiration from the beauty of her Adirondack mountain surroundings and carves at her home-based shop. Sara has been featured in Adirondack Life Magazine as well as appearing on podcasts and in local news stories. It’s exciting to see the interest that people have in this unique form of art!

For custom pieces or for more information about having Sara carve at a show, call Northstar at 518.848.8130 or email Sara at sara@northstarsculptures.com.

    Hi Sara
    I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I saw your show at the Schnecksville Fair Saturday night and I was blown away. Everyone was outstanding and very talented but I really liked your work. I loved the way you strapped on the IPod and rocked through your work. It looked like you were really having a good time and the end product was fantastic. I have a hard time just cutting down a tree in the yard. Anyway, thank you for the show. It really turned me on watching you work and I would have loved to talk to you more but had to get my son and his girlfriend home. Next time I will say hello.


  2. I was at the Adirondack Living Show at the dome end of May just a couple booths over from you. I just did a log railing job for some folks in Waterbury CT. They were asking me if I know any chainsaw carvers. They are interested in having a bear carved out for inside there home with its arm extended out as part of the interior stair rails. They also have a couple trees out side they had limbed out and cut down except for the main trunk. They are interested in having these carved into totom poles. Sounded like you travel a bit so figured you might be interested. They were great people to work for. I will give them your name and web site if you are interested.
