The small island of Nantucket, MA was once the whaling capital of the world. Today instead of harpooning these beautiful giants of the sea we honor them. Artist Jacob Foley hand carves each whale out of slabs of reclaimed hardwoods. Beyond the beauty of each whale is the story within the grain, telling a tale from forest to sea.
Each piece is born from his hands with countless hours spent from start to finish. Truly one-a-kind works of art for the discerning collector. Please contact us below to schedule a studio tour and see Jacob's current work in person.
Jacob lives with his wife Kaity, who runs Fare Isle, and their young happy son, Iley. His work is guided by his love of nature and island life. When he's not carving whales you can find him tending to their organic gardens and cooking private dinners for island clients.
