not saying you don't know your medium, but I have met a few antler artists who didn't know that the dust from antler carving is toxic...one gentlmen I know got really sick from it till he figured out that he needed to wear a mask=)

Warfrost, I'm not at all offended. I'd rather be told something I need to know several times, rather than never be told it at all. Fortunately, I got warned early on about toxic dust, and for anything I don't carve underwater (which is anything I carve with dimond tools) I wear a respirator and goggles while working. A lot of what I carve is toxic; antler, bone, shell, some sorts of rock and wood. And breathing a lot of dust is bad even if it's chemically neutral. So if I hadn't known, and you hadn't told me.... Anyway, do keep warning people. :)

Thanks...I'm really glad=) So many get offended, as if you are questioning their expertise. Your work is very beautiful. I have always appreciated the beauty of using natural materials for artwork. I look forward to seeing more! =D

Well, I sell my work at a few conventions and street fairs in the San Francisco Bay area. If you mean that particular design, I do one of a kind, and that one's been sold.I may do another bird head someday, but it will be a bit different.
