Prehistoric man all over the world used the same principles and methods as modern flintknappers do today to produce gun flints, stone tools and blades.Webb Hamond was fortunate to grow up in eastern Oregon. Hunting and fishing with his father, they would find old arrowheads left by Native Americans who had also hunted these lands. He watched and learned as his father recreated these tools. Webb offers comprehensive classes with in-depth instruction in flintknapping, bow building, and other ancient skills.

Scrimshander Terry Christian has always been fascinated with scrimshaw, the age old art of the sailors. His ancestry is filled with colorful seafarers, the most famous being Fletcher Christian of Mutiny on the Bounty, so Terry feels he comes by his love of scrimshaw naturally. Each piece of ivory is fossilized mammoth or walrus ivory. The mammoth ivory is a minimum of 10,000 years old and the walrus ivory is 100 to 2,500 years old. Most ivory is collected by Alaskan natives as a result of natural errosion. Therefore, it provides an income to the Alaskan natives, but doesn't endanger any natural species. The ivory is carefully selected for its natural beauty, color and size. Colors found in the ivory are a result of minerals in the surrounding earth, giving each piece its individual and distinct characteristics. When Terry is satisfied that the subject will blend with the natural beauty of the ivory he begins his work. Terry is an accomplished Pacific Northwest graphic designer with over 20 years of experience. His work has received international recognition. He is an avid scuba diver and his love for marine life is reflected in his work.
