Hand forged Knives and Tools for Kitchen and Camp

I make hand forged knives and tools for the kitchen and camp from reclaimed antique tool steels salvaged from this region. Using 100 year old sawmill blades, plows, springs, files and rasps, I meticulously forge heirloom quality knives from scratch and finish with the finest quality woods and stones. Using ancient techniques I make my own damascus steel and mokume-gane to make each piece I create a collectable masterpiece.

Functional, sculptural and wearable glass and clay

I see the world in components, little pieces fit together to make the whole. My work is much the same. I create components and then mix and match those components into functional, sculptural or wearable works.

Wingshuck Corn Shuck Dolls + Annie Egypt Herbals

Hand made contemporary and traditional Appalachian corn shuck dolls + all-natural herbal soaps and skin care products

I am a full-time, self-employed craft artist who has been making corn shuck dolls since 1975. I am devoted to the creative process of craft, and especially the alchemy of transforming raw, natural materials into new forms. I dye the natural dried corn shucks by hand, then roll and tie them into doll figures. I embellish the dolls with a variety of natural materials, and repurposed objects. My dolls represent imaginative notions of folklore, legend, myth, healing modalities, shamanism and other earthly and celestial entities, as well as traditional Appalachian themes. I am also devoted to keeping corn shuck doll craft alive, and teach workshops and classes at schools, craft centers and at my studio. I am the author of "Making Colorful Corn Shuck Dolls,” a full-color, step-by-step instructional book on making corn shuck dolls, published in 2011. You can find my work at various craft galleries and shops in the southern Appalachian region.

In addition to my corn shuck artistry, I also produce my own line of natural skin care products under the name Annie Egypt Herbals. I began by experimenting with making my own soaps over 20 years ago, after becoming conscious of harmful synthetic ingredients in commercially produced skin care. In addition to my herbal soaps, I formulate face and body creams, anointing and massage oils, and other products good for the body and soul. All of my products are made in small batches using all-natural vegetable oils and pure essential oils. My products “Won’t make you beautiful; they will keep you beautiful!”™
