Wood Carver Bernie Ross

On Easter Sunday we got a quick visit from Katja and Bernie up from California for a family wedding.

I've known Katja Irvin for years through the Contact Improvisation community. Katja is an amazing dancer. She showed the girls how to do handstands, walkovers and some of her capoiera skills.

Her husband Bernie Ross is a wood worker, restoration artist and carver so we got to talk shop. His website shows a few of his many skills. I enjoyed his whimsical folk art styling of a pair of handsaws into snakesaws.
