Jim Holzschuh

My name is Jim Holzschuh jim@grandisleartworks.com (proud grandpa to your left) and I have long had an interest in wood carving and the work of Charles S. Hall, master wood carver at the Roycroft. I have one of his pieces and recently became more involved in gathering additional information about Hall and his work. The information presented in this website is the result of that investigation—which is, by the way, a work in progress. If you have additional info, comments or just want to share your thoughts on Hall and his carvings please feel free to e-mail me at jim@grandisleartworks.com.
