Thomas Pushruk


King Island, Alaska, USA

(1925- )

Thomas Pushruk was born in 1925 on King Island. In his own words, Thomas describes how he learnt the art of carving. “When I was little my dad used to sit me down and hold both of my arms and tell me this is how to do it. With a piece of ivory in my hands he tells me this is a way to carve it. Later years, around 1934, we have Peter Mayac as the carving teacher. Every weekend we would practice how to carve. We carved seals, walrus, polar bear and paperweights.”
