Mountain Ash Hitty Sissy
March/April 2006

This Mountain Ash Hitty is 4 and 5/8 inches tall, and wears a necklace of the tiniest antique coral-colored seed beads. Mountain Ash, or Rowan, is not native to North America and only grows where it has been planted, and it is not a lumber wood, so it is very hard to obtain. After several years of searching, I was finally able to find a few nice pieces from Canada. This Hitty is my very first Mountain Ash carving! Mountain Ash is a fruitwood and it is hard and splintery, with an unpredictable grain, but it is worth it for this traditional Hitty wood.
