Beautifully Handcrafted Crosses Made By A Local Artist

For the last year we have been featuring beautiful crosses created by a local artist. Don Johns is a talented woodworker, who selects each piece of wood with great care. Woods used include walnut, burl, maple, mesquite and others. Don lets the characteristics of each piece dictate the final size and shape, no two ever being exactly the same. Pieces that would be considered “flawed” by others become works of art as Don lovingly fills cracks & splits with crushed turquoise to create each “masters” piece. We have included a biography that was written by his wife, please take a moment to enjoy the biography and don’t forget to come take a look at we have in the store so you can enjoy his craftsmanship as much as we do.
