Past to Present Progs & Trading Post

I am James Bowden. I have been flintknapping for 33 years, passionately creating images of the past. At first I was largely self-taught. Later, I studied with other knappers in Southern California to advance my skills and knowledge. Early on, sizable stone was unavailable for me, which directly affected my style of flintknapping.

Today I work with a wide variety of materials to flake many different types of stone implements. The tools and methods I use closely follow traditional ones. My forté continues to be intricately flaked eccentrics, and small delicate gem points with long, drawn-out ears. This work fills a special niche in the world of modern flintknapping.

All of my pieces are permanently initialed and dated using a diamond-tipped scribe, making them collectible museum quality replicas and artwork. My knapped work is represented in the Modern Lithic Artists Journal, Volume 3, the Sept./Oct. issue of the Gold Prospectors Magazine, and in the collections of over 30 museums and visitor centers across the United States.

In 2014, a couple of my pieces were the chosen winners for the "Miscellaneous" category in an international dichroic glass art competition, "Dichroic by Design 2014" which was sponsered by CBS, Coatings by Sanberg, Inc. (http://www.cbs-dichroic.com/contests.asp) This winning arrowhead was later published in the March/April 2015 issue of Glass Art magazine https://www.glassartmagazine.com/back-issues/category/49-glass-art-issues

In the 4th episode (aired on 10-29-14) of the TV series "Somebody's Gotta Do It", I instructed Mike Rowe (prior host on the TV show "Dirty Jobs") with his first flintknapping lesson! It was an awesome experience.
