The Bone Collector

Bay House Artisans, Alexandria Bay:

He is a character... I am referring to Wendell Amisimak Stalker, an Inupiat Eskimo who now resides on Rossie NY and is one of the 40 artisans that displays their work at the BHA.  Wendell is a carver of bone, ivory and baleen creating Eskimo hunting scenes, jewelry, and much more.  He is also a blues guitarist and has played with Muddy Waters and B.B. King.

He and the other artisans create an oasis of culture in our community.  Check out the video of his demonstration...
