Clinton man masters his craft

STATELINE NEWS — Gerry Lesch has traveled to all seven continents and carved items out of native wood while visiting six of them.

The exception was his 2009 trip to Antarctica, which doesn’t allow defacing of anything. So, he made do with what he could find, notching an owl out of a bar of soap in three minutes while departing on an old icebreaking ship. Lesch gave it to a Russian couple who had just gotten engaged.

Next summer he plans to visit Iceland and Greenland. But currently his attention is concentrated on Rock County, because he will be the featured carver — for a second time — at the 12th annual Rock River Valley Carvers show, which is scheduled Saturday, Sept. 9, at the Rock County Fairgrounds.
