Ceriani growing as top female speed carver
RIDGWAY – As a top female speed artist, chainsaw carver Dawna Ceriani of Brockport is quick to the saw as she is renowned for producing detailed and quality carvings in under 45 minutes. Last year Ceriani brought in $7,000 in three days for her auction pieces during Block Bash in French Lick, Ind. The event was hosted by the Saw Dogs, a team of the world's top chainsaw carvers who are the feature of a behind the scenes television series. The previous year she placed third in the auction. In addition she also created a masterpiece carving. Ceriani, participating in this year's 15th annual Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous, is often sought after for invitation-only events.
