Carving a Nuu Chah Nulth Style Mask - Steve Brown
|Steve Brown & Makah tyle Mask|
Steve worked with the Makah People on the excavation at the buried village at Lake Ozette and the recreation of traditional canoes. In the picture above he is holding a picture of a Makah mask for which he carved a replica. The replica continues to be used in ceremonies while the original is carefully preserved.
This weekend Steve is teaching a class in mask carving at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking. Many of the students are using adzes and bent knives they made in Steve's tool making class in March 2011.
