story keepers

Story Keepers are a loving nod to Kai's earlier work that he visioned & created 30 years ago. A of his own evolution as an artist, these flying, dancing beings now have freehand woodcut designs or a way to change the story that sits on the piece. 

These wood sculptures are constructed from an assemblage of reclaimed, found & scrap wood from fallen trees & lumber yards dedicated to repurposing old buildings. We choose each piece of wood we carry into the woodshop, so each sculpture has its own unique energy & history.

Every single one is designed, hand crafted, & signed by Kai, the original artist. 

  In the spirit of giving back, each story keeper ordered plants one tree

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.
