About Clark Kellogg
Clark Kellogg is an artist from Houston, Texas who specializes in letter carving in wood. Letter carving has a long and rich history, but sadly today it is an almost forgotten art. Cutting letters by hand is a demanding process requiring skill and patience, but there is simply no substitute for the results that can be accomplished using a mallet, chisel, and gouge – there is a crispness and a subtlety that cannot be matched by machine. Kellogg studied letter carving under master carver Chris Pye and has been carving letters on commission and spec ever since. Some past lettering projects have included house numbers, dedications, awards, and signs. His work has appeared in Fine Woodworking, Woodworker West, and Letter Arts Review.
