Maker Stone, Craftsman and Guide with Easy Track Ghana.

I am a gifted craftsman who excels in creating African designs and artifacts that will keep men in constant touch with the African culture. These are some of the designs that I produce very well:

Wall Masks
These are woods carved into different sizes and shapes that depict most of our African cultural dressings, our facial expressions in moments of Joy, Fear, and Surprises. Our cultural hair do's and how African women can decorate their faces. These wall masks also present pictures of our domestic animals and beasts that we have in African forest such as Lion, Elephant, Giraffe, etc. They are decorated that they can keep you in constant touch with the real African lifestyle that will make your hall, shop, bedroom, etc. a place of African beauty. (Note: You will not see any Lions or Giraffes in Ghana, and Elephants are only found in the far north)

Walking Sticks
As long as royalty and dignity in Africa is concerned, your walking stick defines your worth. Our kings use walking sticks that depict royalty. These sticks bear signs that communicate to the African the status and role of king or person in society. I produce walking sticks that bear pictures or designs of important figures in African society, or an animal that defines greatness, peace, love, etc. These walking sticks are in different categories and sizes. When you get to my studio, you will definitely want to leave with a walking stick.

Adinkra Symbols
Symbols as we know them are one way that we communicate. In our words, they convey meanings to their beholders. The Adinkra symbols are designed to depict Ghanaian cultural meanings of certain societies. They teach you what to do when you see them. I produce key holders (some used by hotels that I have visited while on tour), earrings, and even necklaces that will keep you in perpetual memory of Ghanaian symbols.

Resting Chairs
With the resting chairs designs, words cannot express their beauty until you find yourself resting in one. They are wooden chairs for your body relaxation with beautiful designs that bring you comfort when resting on them.

Drums and Xylophones
These instruments are in different categories. The drums are in different sizes and types. They are purposely designed to meet the African thirst. The xylophone is designed to take the place of the piano in the African context.

Beads and Necklaces
Last but not least are beads and necklaces. They are designed in different sizes and colours to meet your most desired dress. They are made of many materials, including wood, stones, glass beads, clay formed into beads, various metals, shells, cloth and leather. Experience real African designs that will satisfy your desire to know much about African artwork, artifacts and all African design.

I am passionate and concerned about our youth that are walking about in our society. As evidence of this concern, I offer voluntary training to those willing to learn a trade, to allow them to make a living and uphold African culture.
