In our travels across the state, we've found craftsmen making chairs in all shapes, sizes and designs'.but, they're usually made for comfort and beauty out of fine woods and other materials. Well, Ken Wilshire met an artist in Athens, TN who finds some pretty unusual materials and turns them into beautiful rocking chairs.
Ken Wilshire joined the Tennessee Crossroads in 2008 with a desire to tell stories about people who have found their passions in life and who would otherwise go unrecognized for their contributions to their community. Ken began his career at WREG-TV in Memphis, writing, producing and editing news stories, features and documentaries. After leaving Channel 3 he joined Fed Ex in their communications department as a writer/producer and was promoted to the department manager. Ken spent almost 25 years in operations management at FedEx and other Fortune 500 companies.
