"The Art and Craft of Working with Wood" Lecture Series:

Totem Poles at Jamestown S'Klallam

Dale Faulstich
is an artist and woodcarver. He has been living and working on the
Northwest Coast since 1972. His home and studio are located on the North
Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, where he lives with his wife,
Heather, and their two children.

As a non-native, working in a native tradition, Dale enjoys a unique relationship with the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe
of Sequim, WA. The long-standing collaboration has led to many
commissioned artworks.

Dale continues to be
involved in various Tribal projects and he assists Tribal members in
designing and carving traditional objects. He also teaches an ongoing
series of classes.

Dale has created masks, totem poles, steam bent boxes, animal form
bowls, rattles, drums and ceremonial objects; as well as carved doors,
wall panels, furniture and other contemporary applications which can be
found in many private collections in the United States.
