Bringing home evocative pieces of wood from walk on the beach.... Studying
flower arranging in Japan, and learning to see the lines and the space
they create with a new eye....Building a cabin, and not wanting to stop
Kingsbury, "The threads are many. Their intertwining finds me at
a critical juncture of creating functional art with my hands and time.
Time spent turning over an unusual branch, stopping, shifting and turning
again until the blur clears suddenly into sharp focusand the branch tells
me what it wants to become."
as an Art Form
Wood Furniture products coalesce far from the mill and factory. Each branch
is hand-picked, dried, and placed with intention. Each finished piece is
a joyful act of improvisation (essential when using unmilled lumber) and
the crafter's highlighting of the extraordinary.
In this style of rustic furniture, the assymmetrical forms entice you
to interact with tree, the crafter, perhaps even yourself.
In short: you'll never
see anything like it again. Ever.
