THE AMAZING ART OF THE LATE WOOD CARVER JOHNATHAN A. KENDALL (1939-2004)
THE WOOD CARVING FEVER STRUCK HIM IN HIS 20'S, SOMETIMES DISMANTLELING HIS OWN CABIN FOR WOOD TO CARVE. LEFT WITHOUT A ROOF OVER HIS HEAD, HE THEN BEGAN TO TRAVEL, SEING PROJECTS AND ASSIGNEMENTS TO FUEL WHAT WAS NOW A CONSUMING PASSION. HE BECAME A RESTLESS NOMAD, STOPING AT CAMPGROUNDS, MONASTERIES, COMMUNES AND ANYWHERE HE COULD FIND A WELCOME, AND A REASON TO CARVE.
KENDALL OFTEN USED HIS ARTWORK AS CURRENCY, BARTERING IT FOR ROOM AND BOARD.
THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF HIS TRAVELS, HE WAS NO STRANGER TO JAIL, HE REMAINED ELUSIVE, AND LEFT FEW TRACKS OTHER THAN HIS CARVINGS.
IN 2004 HE DIED IN A NURSING HOME OUTSIDE OF SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO AT THE AGE OF 65.
THE EYE OF THE EAGLE SPOTED THE WORK OF KENDALL CARVED IN THE FRONT DOORS OF THE PRESERVATION HALL IN WELLFLEET, MA. WHITCH HE CARVED WITH HIS APPRENTICE CHARLES MACKLEOD IN EXCHANGE TO PITCH HIS TENT IN THE YARD OF THE
THEN WELLFLEET CATHOLIC CHURCH. PERCHED PROMINENTLY OVERLOOKING MAIN STREET, THE DOORS HAVE BECOME A TOWN LANDMARK AND COMMUNITY TREASURE.
