The olive wood workshop

I'm Yannis and I create in my workshop all the wood objects you will see in our shop.
With my family I choose the trees for our olive wood production among the century olive trees brought in Corfu Island by the Venetians in ancient age. These olive trees are seculars and they’re never cut down.
We just cut a small portion that will be curved to produce artistic tools and we preserve trees that are still an ancient memory of the Venetian domination in Corfu Island.
Every time a piece of olive wood is cut, has to stay into a dark room for a couple of years in order to loose very slowly its humidity and give a strong resistance to all the objects that will be created carving it.
During all the winter, I spend my time inside my workshop to curve the olive wood following my inspiration to produce many different kinds of objects and our special collection of pens.
