Gerry Phelan Sculptures
Below is a start to finish series on "The Marlin". It is made of Red Cedar from a large, old tree that had died. It came from North Carolina and now this piece will return to North Carolina as a commission for folks living in the Southport area.
I was staying in a Cabin on the famous Neversink River in the Catskill Mountains of New York, when the owner let me know that their bear had rotted away. That lead to a commission for it's replacement, which they named Forest Gump.
Often I am asked to perform restorations. This Lion was a restoration piece. It is in the slide-show on the home page, but I did not carve it.
I've told you all about myself already! I'd rather tell the story of some of the pieces here. Well ... here's a start -- and more to follow. Gerry
Here is their new bear: "Forest Gump".
