Welcome Back… Joël Dournal-Zanni of Blue Frogs Company!!

We last spotlighted some of Joël's work in July.  Back then, it sold so quickly that we have been long anticipating an opportunity to restock.  Although we had to travel a bit to make it happen, we now have a nice selection of Blue Frog wood pieces for you to choose from!

Here is a bit about the artist!

Dournel-Zanni grew up in northern France where he lived until 1988 when he decided to leave everything behind to travel.  After two years of adventure, he stumbled upon Aspen, Colorado and decided this was the ideal place to plant some roots. After years in Aspen, Joël has relocated to Virginia.

Given the opportunity to make a fresh start, he was determined to make a career out of something that had been an interest of his for years: woodcarving.  Drawing inspiration from his beautiful surroundings, heritage and travel experiences, he has designed an array of wood carvings. His journey has taken him from designing lamps, to Celtic and Viking themed carvings such as knot work, crosses and Celtic symbols.

At G Squared, we are so happy that Joël walked through our door with his stunning handcrafted bowls and other magnificent pieces.

Beautifully crafted one at a time. Every step of the carving and painting process is done by hand with great attention to detail. As a finishing touch a French paste wax is buffed into the finish until a rich luster is obtained.

We are so happy to have more of Joël's work back at G Squared! It won't last long so stop in today!
