The production, “Mud and Water: Flood Stories from Potato Hill and Downstream,” turns a spotlight on Lincoln’s history of deluges. It debuted Wednesday and will feature an encore performance Thursday evening in the school gym.

You can see his work in front of the Jerusalem Corners Country Store in Starksboro. There’s an eagle, a few bears and a full-size man, each intricately carved from a single piece of wood.
