"Drifting down an Arctic Alaskan river to the Arctic Ocean, I do so slowly, in search of ancient Woolly Mammoth tusks as they appear in the gravel and silt, sometimes in deep water.  This photo illustrates a perfect Cow Mammoth tusk deposited in the river's gravel.  I never sculpt a complete tusk but always preserve them intact.  There are enough broken specimens to offer for my sculpture endeavor."
