Many of the antique objects I work with come from all over the country. You never know when or how something will speak to you. Through engaging with the materials and understanding their properties, I can better understand how the final product will engage with its space and those who use it. I look at how a piece can tell it's story. If you have a special object, call me up and lets see how we can bring it to life. The same goes for all the reclaimed wood that I use, Even the roughest looking wood can be cleaned up to be something special.
