Creative Expressions In Wood - Releasing the natural beauty in wood
"A man who works with his hands is a laborer. A man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman. A man who works with his hands, brains, and heart is an artist." - Louis Nizer
John Capanna is an artisan living in the Pocono Mountains,Pa. After years of working in wood, traveling,learning from a master furniture maker,two master woodcarvers and visiting a burl yard in Oregon to observe their craft, John took that experience and made it his own. The result is a very personal and intimate collaboration between artist and nature. " I try to keep all my work as organic and natural as possible. If you over work a piece of wood,you tend to lose the natural beauty inherent in wood."
John is also currently working on his first book,Beyond Recognition: An intimate view of a burn survivors life and recovery.
John appears along with several other burn survivors in the soon to be released documentary: Trial By Fire: Lives Reforged
John also has a blog at :

Ten percent of all proceeds from his work will go various charities,
including, Sanctuaryone a haven for abused and neglected animals
