Thanks for visiting our site! Egan & Ives is a collaboration between Kristen Egan and Damian Ives. We specialize in handmade traditional archery gear and fine crafts. Our goal is to follow sustainable practices while creating products that excel in both performance and aesthetics.
Currently, Egan & Ives has no brick-and-mortar retail location. Our products will be available online, or from our booth at various festivals. Upcoming vending events will be advertised on our home page.
Kristen has a BFA in Art and Design from the SUNY College of Ceramics at Alfred University, NY. She has worked as a freelance artist and illustrator for over 10 years. Traditional archery has been a fun and educational opportunity for Kristen to merge her art and woodworking experience with her lifelong passion for the outdoors.

Damian has a BFA in Furniture and Ceramic Design from Kutztown University, PA. He's found that his training and experience as a furniture-maker lends itself well to the art of building wooden bows. He enjoys studying the techniques of other bowyers and finding ways to streamline his own products and processes.
