Leesa has been making chainsaw art for years, and operates Syryczuk’s Carvings LLC in Thorp, WI.
She has competed in the US Open Chainsaw Sculpture Championships, and was excited to take on the challenge of creating a piece for Sculpture Tour Eau Claire. She felt it was also a way to draw attention to chainsaw art.
“Freedom” is the first chainsaw art sculpture featured in the tour. Lady Liberty lifts her lamp of freedom, while circled by an eagle, with a 7- foot wingspan and American flag in its talons. A lot of engineering went into making sure that eagle stays flying!
