Steve Jensen---"African Poles" were carved from naturally fallen cedar and inspired from his recent trip to Kenya, where he was able to see original African carvings. This artwork begins as homage to its source media. All of the wood used in his carvings is naturally felled. No living tree has or will be cut for the sake of his work. “I come from a long tradition of Norwegian fishermen and boat builders, said Jensen. The chisels I use have been passed from my grandfather to my father to me."
