The Truly Original American Art of Scrimshaw
by Artist Terry Christian
Terry Christian has enjoyed a life long fascination with the ancient art of Scrimshaw. He is taking this age old art of sailors to a new, greener level. His etchings are created without harming any living species. He uses a base of either 10,000 year old Mammoth Ivory, 100+ year old Walrus Ivory, and a new "Green" material called "Eco Ivory," which is an entirely man-made material mimicing the properties of ivory.
Terry has an inventory of Scrimshaw art for sale, and is also available for custom commisioned artwork, made to your specifications. Please browse through his Scrimshaw Art Gallery. Enjoy!
