My work is inspired by the beauty of the natural world.
One of my favorite games as a child was to play store. My brother and I and our friends would go out into the fields and forests to find and make various interesting items that the other children might want.
We would all make a little bit of money out of braided Pine needles to start – braiding them was important so we couldn't counterfeit too much. The different coins would be represented by different configurations of weaving – the higher value ones being harder to make of course. We would set up shop underneath some bushes or next to a rock outcropping and start trading till one of us ran out of good items to sell, then we all dash back out into the forest to find some more supplies. Little did I realize that I would still be enjoying ‘store’ just as much now as I did when I was a child!
I see my Etsy shop "JemKlein" as an upgraded platform of what used to be my childhood game, where I can share my love of crafting in various mediums and forms with a wide audience.
I am a craftsman whose home is surrounded by forests, mountains, rivers and endless creative possibilities. It is a passion of mine to go out (sometimes with my two young boys tagging along) with a saw in hand and collect dead tree limbs, find prize burls, stones or harvest bamboo growing nearby and come back to my shop to see what takes form from these items. I have a deep respect and appreciation for nature and I am always observing my own role therein. I work and play along with my wife and two children from our log cabin in the beautiful Toe River Valley of Western North Carolina.
Thanks for visiting my shop!
