Attention collectors:

The piece you may have in your collection might be a resin casting made from a mould (by the thousands) and not of much collector value.
A simple test to determine if it is a form of resin or plastic is to heat (red hot) up a pin and push it into the bottom of the piece in question. If the pin does melt its way into the material then it definitely is NOT soapstone. Another test is to scrape some material from the bottom of the piece, if it is soapstone it should have no odour and feel like talcum powder, slippery to the touch.

If you wish to get a quotation on replacing your copy with a real soapstone piece then please send me a photo and a description of it in an e-mail.

Not to be confused with other so called 'wolf originals' being sold on the Net, e-bay and elsewhere, Jim's sculptures are not resin or fake soapstone castings!
These are each hand sculpted, one of  a kind, wolf sculptures in genuine soapstone, each signed and dated by the artist.


What's in a wolf's howl -- a calling card, a warning, or perhaps an invitation?

Walking wolf, howling

 Howling keeps packmates together, physically. Because wolves range over vast areas to find food, they are often separated from one another. A wolf's howling works over long distances. Its low pitch and long duration are well suited for transmission in forest and across tundra, and the unique features of each individual's howl allow wolves to identify each other. Howling is a long distance contact and reunion call. Separate a wolf from its pack, and very soon it will begin howling, and howling, and howling...

The wolf sculpture below was based on photographs of a living wolf whose name is 'Marion'. This alpha female, from all the photos I've seen best portrays the image of the north. Marion is much more than a one of a kind wolf, both in spirit and temperament. She is much too elusive to ever be captured in stone again.
