Dale Schierholt’s intimate portrait of Cabot Lyford offers the reflections of a master sculptor. Filmed primarily at his studio in New Harbor, Maine, Lyford is shown sculpting in wood, using mallet and chisel, chainsaw and sander. The boldness of his direct carving technique is matched by his sensitivity to the materials. He focuses on subjects he loves, whether wildlife or women. The film includes visits to his graceful Dolphins in Portland and the monumental black granite My Mother the Wind on the Portsmouth waterfront.
