"FISSION PHOENIX". This extremely rare avian visitor (Grus phoenixii, related to our sandhill crane, but in between the greater and lesser) was first sighted on a winter 2010 survey in the White Mountains north of Fairbanks. She was trying to winterover in a 2004 burn. Though frozen and bedraggled, she accepted capture and withstood three days of sled and truck transport to bring her to my recovery center. She has flourished on a fish diet. Amazingly, she has fledged new plumage this spring. (Preening may lose some feathers, but replacement "spills" are provided.) Though split in places, I think she is ready to return to the wild. 72"H x 36" D x 54"W; black and white spruce, pine and Alaskan birch; May 2010.

Tree Time Trick, 1998-2006. Front view of face carved into living aspen in 1998; grew "parka ruff", lichens and fungi; moose munched and weathered till harvested in 2006. Then original face design recarved on reverse side of tree trunk. Sculpture may be rotated on pedestal. The tricks are that the first sculptured face would normally not "age" in a non-living sculture typically executed in stone. Furthermore, the carving first done in time, 1996, has the older-looking visage, yet a likeness of the same individual aging over time would normally have the more elderly aspect later in 2006 as time passed. Our tree has helped to confuse the audience with the younger face in 2006. Alaskan aspen, Doug fir, spruce; 26" h x 6" w x 15" l; 10/2007.
