John Bryan

John Bryan Carving wood is certainly an interesting way to spend a life in today's world. Even more so when this "over-50 something" weighs what digital technology has brought to our finger tips. I go to work each day carving wood in a centuries old tradition using chisels that were made for me over 200 years ago. Yet my second most important tool is my Mac computer , ramped up with technological marvels, which is my conduit to the rest of the world. It's provided opportunities to work with people who I have never spoken with on the phone, and to show my work to the world via cyberville. It can be confusing now and then as to which era gets my allegiance. Suffice it to say I am happiest in my studio, however this site is critical in it's task of leading you towards me.
