Luce Artist Biography

Dennis Bosch feels that it is important to maintain the quality of our culture’s craft traditions. He defends his preference for carving bone by reminding us that “carvers have been working in bone almost since man started making tools.” He and his wife, who also is a bone carver, use cattle bone rather than whalebone or ivory, since these come from endangered species. Bosch cites Japanese and African carvings as the sources for his own style.
