story keepers & wonderboxes & other imaginary things...

Story Keepers are a loving nod to Kai's earlier work that he visioned & created 30 years ago. These handcrafted wood sculptures are constructed from an assemblage of reclaimed wood, metal, & stone. We choose each piece of wood we carry into the shop, so each sculpture has its own unique energy & history.

Each story keeper is the only one of its kind. The one you see in the photos is the exact one you will receive. The one exception is the palimpsest - these are created to order & will be similar to what you see in the photos.
If you are the loving owner of one of Kai's earlier storypeople sculptures & it is in need of a touch up or you'd like to change the story, email him at so you can have a conversation.
