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 wooden gunstocks as well as handcrafting hunting and Ulu knives. Some knives come with leather sheaths that are hand stitched and hand tooled. Occasionally I offer stone grave markers, the stones come in various sizes and colors. 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 by Alaska Native artist, Wayne Hewson... He was nice enough to let me take the picture of his wonderful work...
