ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hi. My name is Mike Cook and I was created to be a flintknapper. As a child I was always fascinated with the mystery surrounding prehistoric people, awed by the arrowheads and stone tools that my dad had collected. I didn’t really decide to learn to make stone points and tools. I was eventually compelled. After 30 years of flintknapping, for some reason I’m still not tired of it. Truth is that I’m probably more fascinated with it than ever. I suspect that’s because I never grew up.
Besides creating projectile points, I design and knap stone knives, knap and make precious opal jewelry. That’s probably enough but I also practice the art of scrimshaw and do several works each year to embellish the handles of very special knives. My specialty is knapping gem quality flint, jasper, agate and obsidian from around the world. Please enjoy browsing my website and viewing the incredible beauty with which God has endowed mere rocks.
