We spent the previous months snowbound in the workshop—creating custom orders (whale tail utensils, monogrammed baby hands and wedding platters), designing great new pieces (trivets, pig-tail spoons), carving many hearts, teaching a fun program for Rectory School and training an apprentice in the woodshop.
After a years-long search for an office assistant, Serendipity stepped in and brought Christina to us—see her fun treatment of my whale tail utensils on our home page. Later when I needed a hand in the shop, dear Christina showed off her exceptional eye-hand coordination and artistry by carving anything I threw at her! It’s truly a pleasure to pass along skills to such a talented young person. The stress level has gone down considerably since her arrival. Make it a point to meet her at shows this year—you’ll see why I’m so happy!
