contemporary storyblocks

These are synecdoches in a way... pieces of a larger whole.  Once part of towering living trees, then repurposed for a building or a barn, now reclaimed for art. Our way of honoring craft, working with existing materials, always remembering we are only one small part of the story of this wild planet we share...

Each storyblock is cut, shaped & sanded here in our studio, painted by hand with our unique bird & brush process (4-5 layers of paint & ink - including a secret hand

written wish between the layers) & finished with a natural wax. Reclaimed wood has its own biology & life history, so every storyblock will be a little bit different than what you see pictured.

Made to hang on the wall or freely stand in windowsills, on bookshelves, little nooks of rooms you enjoy the most, these talismans serve as reminders & guides. 

Storyblocks are created to order and ship from the studio 1-3 days after ordering.
