Luce Artist Biography

Norm Sartorius left his job as a social worker in Baltimore in the 1970s to live in rural West Virginia. He apprenticed to a woodworker for six months and learned to carve letter openers, shoehorns, canes, and spoons. He made a living from selling craft items and quickly discovered the popularity of his unusual spoons. By 1989, Sartorius had devoted his work entirely to crafting unique spoons from exotic woods.
