Anna and Juan Donado's Profile

About

Goose Grease was born out of a mom's desire to create a few wooden toys for the little gosling at home. Alongside with custom painted wooden miniatures, Goose Grease evolved to offer a large variety of undone supplies for the artists/crafters who want to do-it-themselves. Goose Grease's Artistic Director is Anna Leigh Donado, an artist who, beside from focusing on the folkier side of detailed wooden products, works on her own large scale productions (you can check them out at: www.annadonado.com). Anna is excited and dedicated to maintaining and growing Goose Grease with the help of her husband, Juan, who is finishing his PhD in philosophy here in New York, and with the invaluable help of their little two year old, Simone Louise.

About our new Colombian additions (only the dolls marked as Fair Trade are from Colombia):
These dolls are brought to us through a fair trade agreement with a carpenter we met in Bogota, Colombia. We pay him directly for all of his hard work with these wonderful dolls with a share that is fairly and jointly agreed upon. The dolls are made from Urapan, a wood found and commonly used in Colombia. They are hand-chiseled and sanded on a lathe. We visited his tiny and picturesque shop where we discussed with him the design and our wishes. He happily obliged, and we are very pleased to bring you more options for creating your own personalized family of dolls! Please feel free to contact us with questions.

God Bless!
