Ivory carver David Warther II is one of the most gifted artists I have met in this age-old tradition.  He has been involved in ivory carving for five decades, and his most prominent works are his ship carvings, which have been featured at nearly every major nautical museum in the U.S.  I have known David for many years and he has been one of the more invaluable sources of information as well as materials since I have been in business, and much of what I do would not be possible without his guidance, particularly where following the letter of the law in terms of ivory is concerned.  I get many requests for ivory pieces that are sized or shaped such that they are beyond what I can produce in the musical instrument field.  For these requests, please contact David at   (330) 343-1865, and he will be able to take care of any needs you may have.
