    grizzly bear -stain
    [red cedar- s]


    v26xh15x2cmth Alex Mountain has created a grizzly bear, a figure that can be distinguished from black or brown bears by the upturned snout, and the lengthy claws, shown with the slash cuts in the raised upper paws and the ones of the foot. The teeth are also very clear, with the front ones, the pointed “canine” teeth, locking as they arise from the top and bottom jaws. The piece was carved from red cedar, which was then stained and buffed to a gleaming finish, showing the vertical grain of the wood.. Alex collects chunks of red cedar here and there and then splits them along the grain with a hammer and wedge. This is economical, but since he knows his wood so well, the results are always wonderful pieces of art.
