The Hands Of Olsen


Rick Olsen was introduced to leather carving about forty years ago. After many years of carving, customizing and creating he was joined by his daughter Kathrin. Between the two artisans they have over fifty years of combined experience in this art form. With their love for creating unique and different items, they make a variety of products from the everyday to special occasion pieces.

In addition to leather, the father and daughter team work in seal skin sourced in Newfoundland, creating charming seal figures and practical wallets, purses and cases. Due to the detail involved many of these items are made entirely by hand.

Rick and Kathrin ensure the quality of their work by making each piece themselves. They note they wouldn't sell a piece that they wouldn't be proud to use themselves.
