Ivory Carvings or Sculptures

WITHOUT a great deal of debate it may be confidently said that a well executed ivory sculpture is the most precious and elegant of all carving. To pick one up and gaze upon it is to admire and to smile; to purchase it is to own a valued possession.

These carvings cannot overwhelm you with size to create impact - They are limited by the size of a walrus’ tusk. They do not bear the color of the artist’s brush, to do so would cover its own quiet beauty. Ivory is never “in your face.” nor does it shout to be heard. Ivory is always what it is, without apology or additional adoration. But with its smaller size and elegant ivory color it makes its own statement. The only caveat I would make is that the artist’s skill should not detract from the value of the ivory but enhance and capitalize upon it.

In my work I prefer one hundred year old ivory in a large part for its stability and further just because it is very old. Beyond that, using very old and documented ivory obviates the myth so prevalent that an animal was killed just for the tusks. Indeed of the very many Eskimo friends I am privileged to know I have never heard of waste among them. Every thing is used to include the whiskers and the skins of the intestines.

One should remember too, that every ivory carving is an original. Occasionally there may be small black lines (which often occur in fighting) or slight aberrations of color which are anomalies only if ones experience with ivory have been piano keys.
