Life Size Polar Bear Collection
Alaskan born and raised, Fathom was naturally drawn to the beauty and mystique of the polar bear - it has been a consistent muse throughout his career. The “Life Size Polar Bear Collection” carving began in 2012 with the completion of the first installment, Amazing Grace at a private residences yard in Toronto. As the years pass, his passion for both his artwork and commitment to bringing attention to the endangered species continue to grow - as do the pieces in this series.
At 9 feet and 8,000 pounds, North Star is the largest piece to date, incorporating a high level of intricate detail, design, and creation of it’s natural environment. Using marble from his native Alaskan home, and jade mined here in British Columbia, along with Colorado Yule Marble base, this piece truly represents the the great white North that is home for these beautiful creatures.
