Devilfish Mask Progress with Fred Fulmer Tlingit Artist
In this video I'm talking about the Devilfish Mask. My wife Ivy wanted to learn how to carve. She is helping carve the suckers, paint them and glue on the Abalone. Ivy's contribution to this project has been ongoing. Her input of design ideas are greatly appreciated. I'm recording all sides to capture the scope of this project. This mask has been fun and challenging to create.
Laying Out Operculum Shells with Fred Fulmer Tlingit Artist -
Ancestors Totem Pole
In this video Fred Fulmer is looking at the Ancestors Totem and visualizing how he plans to inlay 140 Operculum shells. Operculum shells are a Hue of White naturally. These White shells when inlayed on a Black background such as a border along a Totem pole pops out due to the contrast of color. These Operculum inlays will be the last of the major step in completing this Totem project.
