Project Description

Bird Carver

Steven Valleau has been a professional bird carver for thirty years, most of them spent at the Wendell Gilley Museum in Southwest Harbor, Maine. In this understated film, Valleau shows us that even the quiet and passionate pursuit of a solitary art such as his can take a surprising toll on the lives of those around him. Providing poignant glimpses into an artists’ life, as well as the nature of obsession, Bird Carver shows us how time can be purposefully, beautifully, and sometimes dangerously spent.
