Joe Wavra and his wife Chris live in a log home they built themselves in a beautiful area of Red Lake Falls, MN known as the Klondike. The land between the Clearwater and Red Lake Rivers that they call home has been a special place for centuries. Home of Native American settlements and a prominent trading post in the age of the Voyageurs, this place has a spiritual presence.
Carving has become a part of Joe’s life as he tries to capture some of the history of this unique place he calls home. Trappers, Voyageurs, Native American’s, and the animals that they hunted are some of his specialties. Inspiration comes from long canoe rides where they come across some of the driftwood that become carvings of spirits from a bygone age.
Joe and Chris are crafty people who can make most anything they put their minds to. Working together keeps them close and happy. They invite you to stop by if you are in the neighborhood, they would love to meet you.
