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...
