Ceramic Wildlife - Musk OX in full winter coat, Two Otters at play, and a rabbit on a tree stump.
Last summer I finished a life sized Newfoundland dog, which is installed as a monument in Veterans Memorial park in bass River, Nova Scotia.
Unveiled July 1, 2012. More info in the Miscelaneous section.

In addition to wood carving, I also carve stone and marble, create in clay and plaster, and offer cast reproductions of my work. I also make a few paintings each year. I enjoy experimenting with different mediums and exploring their strengths and weaknesses.

My subjects of interest are local wildlife, lobster fishermen, carved portraits, local landmarks, and figurative or abstract works.

Recent events include a carving used for the independant movie "Snow" which was released last fall, and a picture of "the Cape Islander" carving is included in the grade 3 Social Studies book for the maritime provinces, as representing local culture. A zylophpne and a lythophone were created for the Shelburne Arts Councel, to be put on the local walking trails, and, of course, "Forgotten Heroes" the monument to dogs who died in war, commissioned by 11 year old Noah Tremblay and now installed in the Veterans Memorial Park.

I am now working in ceramics, although it is still new to me, and I am enjoying exploring the medium. Playing around on the pottery wheel has yeilded a few things like trawl tub tea cups. A portrait of a girl and her horse turned out well; wildlife and garden sculptures have worked out, and other things are in the works.

Located in Nova Scotia, Canada

Custom orders and commissions are mostly welcome.
I may not want to do some things.

Regards,
Clifton
