Yukon craftsperson Claudia MacPhee is masterful at creating extraordinary items with natural materials collected from her Yukon surroundings. Whether it’s handmade hats and mittens made from dog hair (“the warmest clothing in the world,” she says), fishing flies made with polar bear fur and musk ox hair, or wood fired pottery patterned with leaves and other inspirations, Claudia is a true artist. Her pottery and clothing are hot sellers. As for her fishing flies, several Yukon outfitters that run lodges and remote fly-in camps insist on using only Claudia’s custom-tied flies to satisfy their high-paying clientele. And her dog hair clothing? Stores can’t keep them in stock. Give us a call at 323-843-6093 and talk to Claudia on-air. Ask her to share some of her craft making secrets or just listen in for what’s certain to be an entertaining episode.
