|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! More information on custom work can be found here: www.thegreenwolf.com/custom.ht…
Rewild Portland is a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. Our purpose is to promote cultural and environmental resilience through the education of earth-based arts, culture and story. This mission comes to life in the form of educational workshops, community-building events, art shows and ecological restoration. Rewildingmeans returning to a more wild or natural state. This is a large spectrum of nature connection; from learning about native plants to full-on living off grid in the style of our nature-based ancestors. Resilience is a culture’s ability to withstand or bounce back from large scale environmental and social changes. Rewilding creates resilience because it is about getting the things you need to live from the land you live on, not shipped from thousands of miles away. Our goal as an organization is to provide a full-spectrum model of education and implementation; from students who come to a single introductory course, to partners of a collective using regenerative design land management principles to live off the land together.
Since 1998, I’ve donated a portion of the money from my art and book sales to nonprofits that benefit wildlife and their habitats. While Rewild Portland focuses more on the human animal, they have a very strong sustainability focus in their work; for example, they’ve added new classes this year that teach you how to weave baskets and other items out of invasives like English ivy and Himalayan blackberry, using plant matter removed from Forest Park here in Portland. And as people re-learn these ancient skills, we’re reminded that we ARE a part of the ecosystems we dwell in, and we feel more responsibility toward and connection with them.
So I highly recommend Rewild Portland if you’re looking for a nonprofit to support, and if you’re in the Portland area check out some of their upcoming classes (they’re under the Educational Programs tab on their website).
