Winter Wonders Artisan Profile: Burnt Wood Makery

My name is joel kroeker & i like to make things. I worked with fibre & fabric for many years, but my new obsession is wood. After taking a guitar building course i discovered that my heart & my hands liked carving wood. Experimenting with different ideas i zeroed in on spoons & other small carved items. The spoons i make are often organic in design, following the contour & grain of the particular piece being carved. Being an avid doodler, i also enjoy incorporating patterns using wood burning. & there you have the story behind the name: 
Burnt Wood Makery.
