Spotlight - Phil Greene, Wood Canoe Builder | A Natural State

A typical Phil Greene canoe is a Spotlight of exotic and indigenous woods that were cut, sanded, carved and refined for six months or more. The canoes combine sculptural details with practical design, and are as likely to be found on display as they would in a river or lake. The boats create an interesting bridge between art and craft, and Phil offered his thoughts on how the process defines him as an artisan.
