story keeper: perspective 'june'
We lovingly refer to these as our limited edition cabinet series, since they're created from the old cabinets in our kitchen. (It made perfect sense to find a way to make them beautiful again...) These have our bird & brush process, with a handwritten text about belonging to a place on one of the first layers. Each piece has between six & nine layers of paint, ink & graphite, with hand sanding of each layer. Finally, we wax each piece with a lavender beeswax to protect the wood...
The body is reclaimed ply from the late 1970s. The shelf is Canadian pine from pallets our printers in Washington used to ship the 2022 calendars to us here on Cape Cod. The storyblocks are currently reclaimed fir from the 1920s, or old-growth reclaimed redwood from the 1840s.
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. (The storyblock shown is 'daughter of the forest'.)
