About the Artist
Hello, my name is Mark Preston. After 25 years in the business world, I was fortunate to begin a new career and pursue my passion: Horn work and scrimshaw. I was inspired to try my hand at hornworking by the work of a master horner and scrimshander I saw at my first rendezvous.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to meet and watch some true masters at the craft and to learn at their elbows everything that I know. I am indebted to these men and I strive to produce works that would honor them. My work reflects the relentless pursuit of excellence.
I am a member of the Honourable Company of Horners as well as a contributing artisan in the Contemporary Longrifle Association. I make the horns one at a time and I always have a waiting list. If you would like to discuss the possibility of having a horn made for you or for a loved one, please feel free to contact me.
