Hand built objects with a past.
Hand-carved linocuts printed on reclaimed wood.
We work as graphic designers, in front of our computers. Sometimes, we felt like the things we made weren’t quite “real.” We wanted to make tangible objects with practical value—by hand.
In the summer of 2012 Finn & Burnsie started as an idea between two friends Chris Cooper and Kevin Kelly. It was something that let us step away from our computers and work with our hands more. We’ve designed and carved logos, wooden signs, beer six packs and custom bike crates for people like Dauphine Bakery, Grant’s Moustache Wax and Duchess Provisions. Whenever possible, we use reclaimed material—it’s there, we might as well use it.
We feel Finn & Burnsie makes products that have purpose and offer value that goes well beyond the mass-produced items you’d find at the mall. We only make things we’d use ourselves or be proud to display.
You can find Finn & Burnsie at craft and art fairs in Edmonton, on our Etsy store or if there’s something special you’d like shoot us an email and we can talk about it.
