Henry Wischusen

I grew up on the rocky coast of New England surrounded by a great wood working tradition. In my youth, I made all kinds of objects in wood, from tiny sculptures to boats. Upon leaving the corporate world after 35 years of service, I returned to my passion of crafting things from wood but with a new sustainable perspective. Working with delicate wood veneers, I am able to present all the beauty of the wood while maintaining my reverence to the forest.

leafWhat He's Wearing...

Walnut Wood Combination

My bracelet for everyday wear is the first Adrian that I crafted. In fact, it was my very first woven bracelet. I am not sure what inspired me, but, all of a sudden, I found myself carving two bracelets and intertwining them. I have worn this bracelet most days for over two years. The grain and color appears richer as the time has passed. I work with my hands and it gets knocked around quite a bit. Occasionally I will give it a light sanding and a fresh coat of Tung oil to restore its luster.
