|A small selection of some of my more recent works. Please see my gallery for more, as well as my Etsy at thegreenwolf.etsy.com for currently available pieces. I am available for custom work as well--just note me!|
|Over the years I have been asked to create a variety of custom pieces. These have ranged everywhere from wall hangings unique to the buyer to one of a kind leather and fur pouches, and then some! Plus further down the page you'll see some projects that I can pretty easily customize. Here are a few things to keep in mind when requesting custom work:|
What do I want (pouch, bone knife, antler runes/ogam, etc?)
How much do I want to pay? (This is VERY important, as it gives me an idea of how elaborate I can get and what sort of materials I can use. Also, I can suggest certain options for slightly higher or lower price brackets.)
What do I want it made of?
What size do I want the project to be?
What colors do I want incorporated?
What other decorations do I want?
Is there a particular theme/animal/etc. I want?
Do I have a particular timeframe or deadline I need this by?
If interested, please feel free to note me!

Yes, I AM open for commissions! Note me with your ideas and requests! Specializing in making vague ideas turn into very real art
No, I do not hunt these animals myself. Most of what I work with is recycled or reclaimed in some manner; as I have done since 1998, I ritually purify everything I make as part of my spiritual practice, and I donate part of the proceeds to nonprofit groups that benefit wildlife and their habitats.
I'm an artist, nonfic author, and wannabe polymath living in Portland, OR. I'm a pagan and amateur naturalist, geeky, and outdoorsy. I make stuff out of animal remains, beads, and other such things as part of my spiritual practice (and FWIW, I am 100% European mutt, so none of my work can be considered Native American). I'm also entirely self-taught; I took a few art classes in high school and college, but they were really basic and dealt more with traditional media like painting and drawing.
I sell most of what I make; if you're interested in what's currently available, please wander over to www.thegreenwolf.com (you can also find my books on pagan and nature spirituality topics there, too!)

Alright, let’s try this again. I’ve been neglecting writing for a couple of weeks between running Curious Gallery, and recovering from running Curious Gallery (plus finally making some progress on the Tarot of Bones.) However, I haven’t forgotten about my blog readers, so here’s the next installment in Totemism 201!
Almost all of the material available on totemism concerns animal totems. Their plant, fungus and other counterparts are generally ignored; plants and fungi rarely get much attention beyond being used in herbalism and spells, and other than trees and hallucinogenic fungi few plant and fungus totems are addressed in specific. I’ve already addressed this topic before; here I’d like to talk more about what makes moving beyond the animals a Totemism 201 topic.
