Scott Marks Ivory Carvings and Crafts
Scott Marks has been carving ivory since 1967, when he first apprenticed for Nancy Chase, famed Nantucket ivory sculptor. Now he presents his very own hand-carved collection of ivory cut-out bracelets featuring the familiar Nantucket island map, and a wide range of his delightful carved ivory Christmas ornaments especially suited for the ornament collector.
Scott's bracelets are made in the sizes listed, but custom sizes are of course available. His colleague Terri Sackett contributes the hand-woven and knotted bracelets, available in black, blue or neutral dark tan. Bracelets are made from durable, non-stretch paracord, using the Cobra knot, with an ivory toggle closure.
Scott uses only legal antique ivory, obtained from a local sculptor many decades ago. He shapes each piece in his collection by hand, accounting for their unique charm, and draws each piece free-hand or from tracings. Sizes are approximate and decorations may differ, and custom work is always welcome. What you can dream, Scott can carve!
