From iTunes to Hand-Carved Spoons with Windy Chien

October 14, 2015

“I got to SF before the techies,” says rising crafts star Windy Chien. “It was freaks, bohemians, and artists; you could do anything and it was a valid life.” Windy is a case in point. Now a full-time master spoon carver living in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district, she has been a punk rocker, a filmmaker, a record shop owner, and an Apple executive who helped create iTunes. “The whole time I was at Apple, I knew it was temporary,” she says. “I will always be a punk rocker at heart.” Her work combines the sensual with the pragmatic, updating classic genres: wooden spoons, but also macramé and jewelry. Each piece is slyly funny as well as beautiful, something both Steve Jobs and Jello Biafra would love. To see more, go to Windy Chien.
