A Non-Native Working In A Native Tradition
Majestic totem poles
Along with my talented crew, I've carved more than 50 totem poles so far, ranging in size from 5-49 feet tall. I've also created numerous masks, drums, steam-bent boxes, animal form bowls, rattles, and traditional objects for actual ceremonial use. In addition, I've created carved doors, wall panels, furniture, and other pieces with contemporary applications, which can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and in many other countries.
