DAVID NEWCOMER

Saying that Newcomer's creations are marvelous is an understatement. Their design and coloring are reminiscent of the real McCoys. He's carved marlin, tuna, bluefish and whales, and now he's doing trout, redfish, snook and mackerel. Often, it's conversation around the waterfront that inspires him to carve. Newcomer carves his creations from mill slabs. He finds the raw materials from mills throughout the northeastern states.
