These are our most recent Pieces.
We will update this page as often as we can.

The collaboration of our husband and wife partnership enhances our highly creative and unique work.
We create soft looking sculptural objects, inspired by nature and fashion, out of hard woods.
Each twist, turn, bend and fold of the life size sculptural wood objects are carved with individually executed pieces fitted together,
then finely sanded and oiled to celebrate the beauty, natural colors and grain of the wood.

We wanted to capture the image of seeing a fish in a pond, just surfacing under some floating leafs. We started by temporarily pinning 2 pieces of Walnut together to form a square block, so we could carve the box as one piece into a spherical shape. After carving all the Ginkgo leafs in place, we carve and fit the Koi fish out of Ginkgo wood. The eyes are carved separately from African Black, they bring the fish to life. Then we take it apart and carve out the inside, fit the brass pin and sleeve to allow the lid to pivot sideways to open and magnets to hold the lid closed. We use India Ink for the black background and finish with a penetrating oil.

For the Apple of your eye, Apple for the teacher. This Apple, with the swing top will make a great gift or presentation box for that special occasion. The apple is carved from bloodwood, with its natural red color, walnut stem and carved poplar leaf. The top is held closed with 2 magnets. We carve the lid and the body of the apple as one piece, joined together with little dowel pins. After the outside is carved and pre-sanded, we take it apart and carve out the inside. Fit the pin, sleeve and magnets and then carve the stem and leaf to fit the contours of the apple. Before gluing the stem and leaf on, we finish hand sand with micro-mesh , up to 12,000 grit, to get the shine and show the beautiful grain. The final step is to use a penetrating oil to enhance the natural beauty.
