About the Artist
My name is Jem Klein and I am a craftsman whose home is in the beautiful South Toe River Valley of Western North Carolina.
It is a passion of mine to go out in the woods with my two sons often tagging along. We find wild bamboo, prize burls, collect dead tree limbs, and spot spalted wonders. The forest treasures make their way back to my workshop and take their own expressive form.
I have a deep respect and appreciation for nature and am always observing my own role therein.
My shakuhachi flutes, unique jewelry, home decor creations, and sculptural forms are inspired by the beauty of the natural world and are sold in galleries and shops throughout the USA as well as on Etsy.
All the wood and bamboo I use is sustainably harvested with respect & appreciation for the health of the forest. I do not use imported or rainforest derived wood. All my work is dug, cut, sanded and polished by my hands. I do not own or hire out a laser cutter or a third party of any kind.
I am a maker of many things. You can see a variety of my handcrafted nature inspired jewelry and barrettes, as well as my shakuhachi flutes for sale on my Etsy shop:
When you purchase something from www.jemklein.com you are supporting a kind family not a big corporation. The forest around our homestead supplies our materials. Our hands sculpt, create and ship to you.
This is where I make my wares; in our little cabin in the woods.
Here's my clan: my wife, Meredith, and my sons; Oak and Eben.
My son Eben and I loaded some fallen Wild Cherry logs into our "Prius Truck"
My wonderful wife, Meredith, who does so much for our family, our homestead and our business.
Here's our mascots; Ranger the dog and....
Mr. Yogi Meow Meows Sunspot & Mr. Hobart Potter (named by the boys)
When I'm not in the woods, or in the shop, you can find me in my organic garden!
This is the family you support when you purchase something form www.jemklein.com
