My name is Bori Gheorghita, and I am the owner and maker of Woods of wonder. This little shop was created in 2017. At first I made tiny things just as gifts for my friends and family, than after a few years and with your support, it grew out to be a small business. Inspired by woodland landscapes, flora, fauna and all the magnificent creatures that dwell within. With time, each piece became a tribute to the intricate wonders of our natural world.
Today, this small business stands as a testament to the beauty of nature. It serves as a reminder that even in a bustling modern world, we can reconnect with the magic of the wilderness, one handmade creation at a time.
A little bit about me: I was born in Hungary, but I have huge love for travelling, so I move around Europe from time to time (Scotland, France etc.). As the maker and creator of Woods of wonder, I make everything from sculpting to painting, from photography to packing your orders, editing this website and managing social media.
I studied as a sculptor at Glasgow School of Art and sculptor-restoration at the Hungarian University of fine arts. Even at uni, I always tried to work with natural materials, (like clay, stone, wood etc.) and the biggest inspiration for my work was always deeply rooted in nature.
This passion for nature, animals, and whimsy reflects back from each piece that I make.
I take pride in my commitment to sustainability and responsible craftsmanship.
All the wooden pins, key-chains and necklaces are made from eco-friendly, responsibly sourced, fast growing maple veneer. Each wooden creation is a small piece of nature, crafted with love and imbued with the essence of the forest.
With every purchase, you not only support responsible craftsmanship but also invite a touch of nature's enchantment into your life.
