Biography Gene Zesch
Raised on a ranch in the hill country near Mason, Texas and still working from a studio on that property, Gene Zesch is a wood carver of caricatures of the American West. His figures tell the story of the people of dying ranches in that area, and he gets at these truths through humor.
His first exposure to wood carving was a visit to Santa Fe during his Army service, and his first carving was an old camp cook and the second a sad-looking soldier. The demand for his wood carving became so great that he sent the molds to a foundry so he also had them in bronze. Unlike many wood carvers, he ended up in some of the best galleries of the West, and he attributes the interest in his work to the detailing of the faces.
