Moving to Tumblr

Well, I've been hesitating to do this again, but it's just true that Tumblr makes it a bit easier to do a lot of things. So I'm announcing that I'm moving this blog to my new home on tumblr

So I'm adding a monogram to my "branding" to hit the bench.

Charles Clary

I've always liked the idea of layers. You can take something simple and upon adding layers to it make it intricately complex. That probably explains why I'm attracted to using veneers as a way of building wood.

Charles Clary, a SCAD artist perfectly embodies this concept in his group of work. You can check out more of his stuff on his blog.

some progress.

I know it's been a while but here's some FINISHED (yay!) prototypes. Each piece is made from layering several layers of veneer on top of each other so that these are actually dimensional pieces, not just a "print on wood."

Still working on launching my etsy store but I am also planning a wedding now so I'd rather wait till I'm ready to launch then rushing into it.

Constructive criticism welcome. I'm still trying out photo compositions so if you have suggestions that would be appreciated as well!

pop wood.

I love it when pop culture and wood grain mix. It seems that the vinyl world has been introducing more and more wooden toys. Why not? Wood brings a even more unique touch to these collectible items. Best of all the artist has taken the initiative to make them as eco-friendly as possible. Wood always adds character and gives another layer of customization.

This little guy is named Mimushi:
"a sumo kid who was adopted by American parents, and who developed an identity crisis so strong, that it froze him at the age of 3."
You can find out more about Mimushi at their blog. The coolest part is they give you a step by step look at the process. Very inspiring!

With a name like Twee you really can't help but like them, but it also happens that they make some pretty sweet wood jewelry. They are definitely a couple of craftsters that have caught my eye: simple aesthetics that showcase the beauty of wood.
