Rev. Herman Hayes (1923 - )

Rev. Hayes lives in West Virginia and has been a Methodist minister for over thirty years.  His intricate wood carvings range in size from small people on toothpicks and golf tees to figures six feet tall.   The miniature people, each with distinctive individual faces, are frequently in church or sports stadium settings.  Rev. Hayes prefers to use basswood and buckeye, left in their natural finish.
