whispers: the verts || aquapetravert

we begin with a "vert" - Latin for "to turn to - & then we consider the things in the natural world that we turn to when we need to refresh, refuel, rebalance... we lightly refer to this series as our "verts"
scientifically unproven & perfectly plausible (because extrovert & introvert are simply not enough...)
aquapetravert (n.): one who quiets when walking shorelines looking for water-worn stones. particularly adept at finding a shocking amount of magical rocks that fit perfectly in their home.

repurposed & handcrafted...

We have the deep joy of working with incredibly beautiful wood, sometimes from trees that are hundreds of years old... This means every piece that leaves our studio carries along its own history & is entirely unique.

The wood species will vary according to what we can source from local small businesses that share our ethos.

All our reclaimed wood products are made for you as soon as you place an order - which is why it may take us a day or two to get these out to you.

We shape, sand & wax each piece here in our studio. Woodcuts are done freehand. Unless stated otherwise, painted pieces have our unique bird & brush process: 4-6 layers of paint, graphite & ink (including a secret hand written wish between layers).

Our wood pieces come with a small card telling a bit about us & the piece, & are either wrapped in repurposed pages from old books or in an organic cotton bag.
