Multi-talented - he sings, plays many instruments, tells stories, and acts. When you see this duo, you are sure to notice Little Roy, and he'll make you smile.
MASTER CHAINSAW SCULPTOR
In 1992, Masters of the Chainsaw was formed to provide professional representation for chainsaw carvers in the business of carving performance art. The original founders of Masters of the Chainsaw are Steve Blanchard of Monterey, California, and Brian Ruth of Hartsville, Pennsylvania. The two sculptors met at the Winternational Chainsaw Carving Competition in Tampa, Florida. Brian took a first place and Steve took a second place.

In 1995, due to increased demand at his full time studio and shop, Steve asked to be relieved of his duties to Masters of the Chainsaw and proprietorship went to Brian Ruth. His wife and partner, Jen has since teamed up with Brian. Together they continue to place the best artists at various events around the world. Masters of the Chainsaw main focus is the representation of only the finest professional chainsaw sculptors. The carvers they seek to represent are the very best performance chainsaw artists in the world. The carver's artistic ability and speed are not the only criteria they must meet to be one of Masters of the Chainsaw.
