Welcome to Steve Lankerd Studio

Thank you for visiting my website.  We are located in Southeast Alaska on Annette Island in the Tsimshean Indian village of Metlakatla.  I feel that I am very lucky to live in such a beautiful area.  There never seems to be a shortage of subject material and I try to share with others some of the many things that I have seen through my art work.

I specialize in fine scrimshaw on mammoth ivory using unique techniques to achieve high detail. Some of the other things that I create are as follows....  carving intricate wildlife scenes on wood gun stocks as well as handcrafting hunting and ulu knives.  Occasionally I offer stone grave markers, the stones come in various sizes and colors.  I create leather items such as key fobs, minimalist wallets and custom knife sheaths.  I make other things as well, depending on where my creative ideas lead me... these will appear on this site....

The above picture, is from a carving created by Alaska Native Artist, Wayne Hewson... He was kind enough to let me take a picture of his wonderful work...
