The Home of "Elephant Friendly Scrimshaw"
We are proud to present the work of the following artists, to view photos of their work just click on their name.
|Gary is a fellow Scrimshander who has taken the art to a level achieved by only a handful of Scrimshaw artists.
||Yes, Jeff is our number 1 Son who only a year ago started doing a little tin smithing. He recently acquired a few tools and fixtures which will allow him to expand and refine his skills.
||Nick is our number 2 Son, he started apprenticing under one of the Midwest's premier Master Blacksmiths when he was only 12 years old, he is now 43 and over the last 4 or 5 years has spent more time honing his skills at the forge and anvil producing some outstanding work.
|An interesting fact is......
A Blacksmith is of course someone who forges iron and steel work.
Someone that works with tin and other sheet metals is referred
to as a White smith.
||I met Jennifer a few years ago while at an event we participated in. During our conversation we learned we had 2 things in common, Firefighting and Art, Jennifer mentioned her passion was pencil drawings, I asked her to e-mail me some examples of her work. When we returned home and I opened her e-mail I was very impressed, when you click on her name you'll see why. I asked her then if she would allow us to Showcase her work in our Guest Artist section and now, several years later, here she is.
It is an honor for us to present these Artists to you.
Enjoy your visit.
Walk in peace my Friends,
