John and Gretchen McAbery's Profile

About

John lives and works in his small hand built ocean side cabin, without electricity, phone or road access, on the remote and rugged beautiful Lost Coast in Northern California. All of his one of a kind Sculptures are hand carved from solid blocks of naturally fallen California Bay Laurel wood, using just a few simple hand tools and a lot of muscle, talent and patience! John's partner, Gretchen Bunker, designs the bases and many of the sculptures, helps with the finish work and does his sculpture photography. Their free flowing designs are inspired by their natural surroundings, the ocean, land and sky... Out of respect for the environment, they also grow and plant native trees in the local watershed... John's sculptures have been shown in many fine galleries and exhibitions throughout the country, and are in many private collections as well.
