In his Maine studio, Michael Hankes creates wood sculptures of coastal fish and birds. An avid outdoorsman, he first started making crude duck decoys as a child with driftwood he found exploring. After years of carving various wood species, he slowly learned to work with, not fight, the grain — and now, in fact, exploits the grain of unique woods to create more decorative pieces. Though his work is true to form, the pieces are “abstract” in nature, highlighting the beauty of the animals without the details of their faces, scales, and feathers.
