The Kwakiutl Carving Process Comes to Uncle Paulie's World in April

video


Ever wondered how those Northwest Coast Native artists create such beautiful wood carvings?  In April, I will be featuring an interview with Cree/Mohawk carver Gary Starr, who was raised by his stepdad Reg Scow, a Kwakiutl from Alert Bay, British Columbia.   Barry Scow, a well-known carver, taught and mentored Gary, who is known for his incredibly articulated masks and puppets.


Today, Starr made a visit to Cedar Works Gallery in Bellingham, Washington to participate in a public demo.  Here is a teaser which speeds up the carving process for your enjoyment.  The music you hear in the background ("Return") is from Shelley Morningsong's latest NAMA Award-Winning ("Album of the Year)CD "Full Circle."
