Extraordinary Stone Tools: Woody Blackwell and the Art of Flintknapping
A few days ago, someone I didn’t know left a comment on a random post I made. I happened to check out the commenter’s website and was pretty blown away. So much so that I wanted to take the time to share the link with everyone else.
Over the years, Woody’s created a lot of different things using a wide variety of materials. In addition to the varying sizes and shapes, I was actually quite surprised to see so much color. Some even struck me as almost otherworldly. Who knew so many variations of stone and flint existed?
If you’re interested in learning about his process, or simply watching him work up close… he has a DVD available, which takes people on a step-by-step tour of the flintknapping tools and techniques.
It’s not hyperbole to state that Woody is quite prolific. If you are as awed as I am by his stone tool work, make sure to check out his Sculpture area as well. There’s a lot of really great stuff to check out on this site.
