If you are the proud owner of a work of art made of exquisite mammoth ivory, you are connected to ancient natural history and the preservation of this precious material. Approximately 10,000 to 100,000 years old, its beauty is unsurpassed in its origin and evolution over thousands of years. Eco-conscious and remarkable in the range of color tones it offers, wooly mammoth ivory is the only type of ivory that is allowed legally to enter the USA and many other countries and has no trade restrictions because no animals are being harmed to harvest the tusks.
NORTH SEA MAMMOTH IVORY is some of the oldest and rarest, averaging 40,000 years, and is the most costly because of limited availability. It possesses astoundingly bold and beautiful colors reflecting the mineralization of wooly mammoth remains that have been submerged beneath the North Sea for thousands of years.
ALASKAN AND SIBERIAN MAMMOTH IVORY reflect the warmth of the earth in cream colors that hold blue and brown tones offering depth and richness in coloration. Tusks of the ancient wooly mammoth are breaking through the permafrost in Alaska and Siberia, and are found in massive bone fields that extend for considerable distances.
MAMMOTH TOOTH has unsurpassed colors running through the plate structures. Colors can range from tan to blue and cream. Mammoth tooth is a challenging material to carve, yet allows for a truly unique and beautiful pendant carving.
MAMMOTH BONE is found alongside other mammoth remains. Once stabilized, mammoth bone makes a solid beautiful carving material. Colors range from dark brown to gray and displays the cellular structure of the once living animal.
FOSSIL WALRUS IVORY Is mostly found buried in the frozen ground along the Arctic coasts of Alaska and St. Lawrence Island and has been dated as being more than 1000 years old. Like the wooly mammoth ivory, this precious material offers rich earth tones of creams and browns.
NATURALLY SHED ANTLER materials provide a unique canvas to create the beauty of wildlife in a piece of the animals that make the outdoors and wilderness so special. The free form shape, curves, and bone quality of antlers are themselves a work of art, offering opportunities to have the details of each carving come to life.
