Gunther Keil, the artist behind Wild Apples, was raised in Berlin and as a self-taught woodworker, his toys reflect his German toy-making traditions. He currently lives in central New York on a 55 acre farm where he enjoys raising sheep and bees. Gunther started making wooden toys over 30 years ago and his work has been shown in the Smithsonian, American Craft and Toy Museums world wide.
We especially love that he harvests his own trees on his land to create all of his crafts. For more information about Wild Apples, click here. Here are a few of our favorites from their company:
