story keeper palimpsest: storyblock
palimpsests: "... something having usually diverse layers or aspects apparent beneath the surface..."
Kai started with a slab of reclaimed hickory. After it was shaped, we began the first few layers with our usual bird & brush process, but instead of a secret wish, we added an entire secret story about home. And then added a few more layers until it seemed ready for the shelf.
The slice of Shagbark Hickory is from a tree in North Carolina that was milled into floor boards for a razed barn. The shelf is corral board - old fenceposts reclaimed from a Montana farm, naturally weathered by the elements. And this particular storyblock is on Oak from a sustainable tree farm in France...
This storykeeper comes with a contemporary storyblock of your choice from this collection. Just let us know which one you'd like at the cart.
