What ever gave me the idea to use Pine Needles?
God gave me my life and my mind, so he gets the credit for my thoughts and ideas. My Inspiration comes from all that I love.
How long does it take to do my work?
My carvings in Moose antler take me from 1 to 4 weeks. My bears take me 3 to 8 months plus.
I buy my antlers. Find them, and some are given to me. Antlers are SHED every year. I leave them the natural color after carving. No animal is killed for their parts.
My Bears ~ Construction???
If your question involves constuction of my bears.......that's my secret......to answer them would take away the magic of my bears. I will say my large bears weigh under 50 pounds have a polyurethane finish and are made to be indoors. Eyes , nose, and claws are carved wood.
Yes...that's is my real name. No.....I'm am not the singer and I doubt if we are related. I'm 52 and attached.
How long have I been doing this?
I'm a self taught artist. I've been carving for 18 years and started making Pine Needle Bears in 1995.
Where do I live?
I live near the town of Salmon ,Idaho.
Prices for my art?
That's a broad question. Every piece is Original and has it's own price. Carvings can run from $500 to $2500......My Large Bears ?????? $60,000 +.
