Maple, Walnut, Reed, Copper Rivets, Magnet Wire


Wood and weave – if there is any truly defining Appalachian process, this is it.

Simple, beautiful, thoughtful, tough, and pragmatic.

I feel, between my fingers, in every bend of white oak, maple, and reed, hundreds of years of tradition.

Voices resonating through generations, mountains, and across the ocean.

I am honored to be included in this rich conversation.

It makes me happy ~ that’s enough.
