Our spotlight today features another new artisan, Spandex Splinters. Dan Willner is the creator of these unique hand carved super heros. He started carving in 2011, when he looked to his Scandinavian roots and took a look at wood carving. After many attempts at Santas and gnomes, he decided that trying to imitate what someone else was making was not the right direction for him. Digging deep into his almost 40 year obsession with comic books, he started to carve super hero heads with a twist.
