Seattle artist Edward Wicklander's recent body of work showcases the artist's ability as a woodcarver as well as his unique brand of humorous narrative. His intricately carved surfaces reveal a deep reverence for materials, while his subject matter stimulates the imagination, as his eccentric storytelling eludes concrete meaning.

Wicklander is a craftsman of diverse talents. His work involves many different techniques including wood carving, blown and cast glass, metalsmithing and welding, bronze casting, and an intriguing combination of materials. He sees his forte as his "ability to use very different materials to their greatest advantage."
