Both Clausen and Vorwaller create singular works of art, each carving executed with unique style and flair, often utilizing regionally sourced and salvaged woods, such as the Myrtlewood for which Bandon is well known, as well as other woods from the area, including Port Orford Cedar and Oregon Bigleaf Maple, among others.
Rütten and his film crew focused on Clausen's work, filming him in several area locations, from the Riverton community near Bandon, where he resides and has a workshop along the Coquille River; at Whiskey Run Beach, where he was assisted by Vorwaller for a wood salvaging segment; and various other locations, all the way South to Gold Beach.
