About ASI / Instructors / Paul Anderson

Paul Anderson

Paul Anderson has always enjoyed working with wood. After retiring from teaching he has been excited to find more time to enjoy wood carving. With his Scandinavian heritage, he has been inspired to explore traditional Scandinavian forms in carving bowls, chip carving, and relief carving. He entered the world of Greenwood carving with spoons and then shifted to bowl carving. He became interested in chip carving as a way to embellish his bowls, and now enjoys teaching the craft. He enjoys challenging himself to bring fresh interpretations to folk design.
