Ron Van Zee

Bayport, MN artisan Ron Van Zee believes that a well-crafted wooden box is in perfect resonance with the magic of the little personal artifacts of life: both hold the memories linked to the treasures we accumulate. “As a frame is placed around a picture,” says Ron, “a box imparts a quality to that which it surrounds.”

To that end, the artist is committed to a respectful use of his once-living materials. He chooses recycled and salvaged wood, as well as wood from regional suppliers of sustainable native species.
