Ýdalir – the “Yew Dales” – is the remote, Northern home of the Norse god Ullr, a master archer and renowned skier. Ullr and his realm have always been associated with integrity, skill, honour, and independence.
As a craftsman, my woodworking begins in the pristine forests where nature plays out scenes of survival and teaches lessons of ingenuity. I look to Ýdalir for inspiration, guidance, and mastery.
My designs are influenced by Scandinavian, Slavic, and Celtic traditions, artwork, and culture.
