Willard Stone

Randy Ramer

This lavishly illustrated volume presents the life and work of Cherokee woodcarver Willard Stone. Four authors, including staff of the Gilcrease Museum and one of Stone's grandsons, provide insight into the artist's biography, his carving techniques, his sources of inspiration, and his legacy as an Oklahoma artist. Referring to himself as a ""folklorist in wood,"" Stone carved his philosophy of life into his works, creating stories that glowed with universal truths and resonated with his own personality. In addition to his ability to create beautiful forms, it is his gift of storytelling that lends the carvings of Willard Stone their profound mark of distinction.
