Bradley S. Miller ~ Soapstone Carving

Teaching Native American Indian traditions

I have always been an outdoors person, sportsman, and nature lover. I enjoy working with my hands and creating projects using things I find in nature. My purpose is to make things that everyone may enjoy and reflect on. My carvings are an expression of my inspirations. Each creation was inspired by a vision and carved with a passion.

I am a self taught carver with roots along the Susquehanna River where hunting ducks has long been a tradition. My first attempt at carving was a cork body Mallard Decoy with a wooden head and glass eyes. The next challenge was painting the vivid colors of the Drake Mallard in winter 

While vacationing in Cherokee N.C. I had the fortune to meet a full blooded Cherokee Carver by the name of John Grant. His carvings in stone to say the least are magnificent. John inspired me to start I carve Steatite (soapstone) effigies similar to those carved by Native American Indians.

I teach carving and lecture on Early Man up to and including European contact Period.

I belong to the Central Pennsylvania Rock and Mineral Club as well as being a volunteer at the Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission Archaeology Section. 

I recently was awarded the “Each One Teach One” Trophy Award by the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical & Lapidary Society for my carving and education efforts.

My creations are currently on display at the Perry County Council of the Arts in Newport, Pa. the American Artist Gallery in Carlisle, Pa. And the Feathered Nest in New Germantown, Pa.
