About Blue Frogs Company

Joel Dournel-Zanni grew up in northern France where he lived until 1988 when he decided to leave everything behind to travel.  After two years of adventure, he stumbled upon Aspen, Colorado and decided this was the ideal place to plant some roots.

Given the opportunity to make a fresh start, he was determined to make a career out of something that had been an interest of his for years: woodcarving.  Drawing inspiration from his beautiful surroundings, heritage and travel experiences, he has designed an array of wood carvings. His journey has taken him from designing lamps, to Celtic and Viking themed carvings such as knot work, crosses and Celtic symbols.

Over the years, Blue Frogs has expanded to four distinct hand-carved collections: Bird Wood Carvings, Celtic and Viking Wood Carvings, Bone ~ Antler Carvings and most recently Artisan Bowls.

Blue Frogs offers retail and wholesale accounts and always welcomes the opportunity to work on commission pieces. Please contact us for more information. You can also find and follow us on Facebook and sign up to receive our blog.
