SNEAK PEEK: THE TOTEM PROJECT, PART 2 – CARVING
Master carver David Svenson began work on the wood totem in early Spring, 2009. Here are some images of his process and the magnificent finished piece.

In May 2010, the pole was finished….Preston went to California to visit and get started on the casting process, to be discussed in a future post.
