Throughout May, Tlingit artist Odin Lonning is demonstrating traditional Coastal carving at the Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie/Minglement. Look for his display on the front porch. He is currently working on a commission consisting of three sculpted bird heads for a local restoration project. Be sure to stop by to ask him about this noteworthy endeavor.
Just in time for Mother’s Day, Odin will have pieces for sale -- carved panels, paddles, dance wands, paintings, drums, and t-shirts. Proceeds from art sales benefit the Vashon Hydrophone Project’s whale research and marine mammal stranding response.
Call 206-463-9041 or email OdinShark@aol.com to confirm hours when the artist will be at the Roasterie.
