Chainsaw winner at the 2017 Landowner Conference - James Hewes of Potomac, Montana

Mike and Jody Christianson determining winner of the 2017 Landowner Conference chainsaw raffle.

And the winner is...James Hewes of Potomac, MT!  James is pictured here on his property in front of one of his artistic creations, the Tamarack Talisman, 30’ w 25’ h 25’ deep.    "I’m feeling pretty lucky to have this new saw thanks to you." - Jim

The Talisman was 30’ x 30’ x 30’ when I finished it in 2003.   The present configuration is 30’ wide about 25’ tall similar to the picture.  The panels are just painted aluminum and a wire mesh.  I’ve changed it since that picture and used the parts for different installations around the property. 

The new works include Buddhist mandalas and Chinese symbols all suspended in the same geometry.  All rather large too.  I’m developing a kind of sculpture garden / sanctuary here in Potomac.
