The manifestation of transforming wood and organics into usable, artistic treasures is achieved with fabricating, turning, refining, and exceptional polishing techniques. Exotic and domestic woods, corn cobs, antlers, and acrylic composites along with combinations of all of these are used to in the creation of our pieces. Each piece is unique unto itself in material and style. Hand made, and always creative, each piece tells its own story.
