Mike’s interest in Native American and Scandinavian traditions has kept him constantly pursuing boreal forest crafts and materials for project ideas. He finds utility craft particularly intriguing, and the thought of putting his crafts to work on an everyday level keeps him searching for the next project. Whether crafting with his teenage daughter, Aurora, or shaping canoe paddles from a crooked knife he fashioned from an old file, Mike’s ingenuity and approach to craft is refreshing.
