Wild & Wonderful Wood

Carefully crafted and unique, our wood collection speaks of the ancient traditions of woodworking and the bright visions of today’s artisans. Whether using a lathe, a chisel, a handsaw, or a laser-cutter, our woodworkers show off the natural, timeless beauty of wood.

Glass as Craft

Our glass collection ranges from kitchenware to free-form sculptures and includes countless craft processes including hand-blown, fused, stained, flame-worked, recycled, and dichroic glass. One of the most volatile media to work with, our glass artists spend years learning techniques to master light, color, and texture. The mysterious qualities of glass are often cause for awe and wonder – and our collection will not disappoint.
