Born and raised in Buffalo, N.Y., Bob Grytten and his wife, Carol, now live and work in Waynesville, N.C. As a nature photographer and writer, his work has taken him throughout the world, with his photography and articles appearing in numerous regional and national publications. His work has been exhibited internationally and received many awards.
Bob now continues his love of the natural environment in wood working, creating furniture and other wood crafted objects in a collection called Casual Line Rustics. He rarely cuts living trees, preferring to look for logging activities and wood that can be rescued from the chipper or wood stove. He says to be able to,"….sort of continue its life, gives us great pleasure. Sometimes we feel like foster parents, a ward, until the final guardian is found.”
