Wrapped In Tradition

Copper Banded Cutting Boards
three sizes available

7.5" $125.00
10"  $200.00
14"  $275.00

These great cutting boards are made of solid Beech wood but what makes them so special is the copper detailing that wraps around the edges of each piece.  The copper band is engraved with a beautiful vine detail that is reminiscent of something that would be found on the walls of a charming old-world Tuscan villa or in the pantry on century old stoneware.  The three sizes make it a perfect fit for any size kitchen.

Get In Gear!

Cog Bowls
by Lesley Anton
Available in gold, mustard, matte turquoise, and frost white(shown)

4" $45.00
6" $58.00
8" $68.00

Black mountain stoneware, each piece is handcrafted by the talented Lesley Anton.  Her style can best be described as "organic modern" gathering inspiration from many sources including the natural world, mankind and machinery as seen here in the Cog Bowls.  I love that the bowls are stoneware but have a very industrial feel.  Each size is perfect for entertaining or to be used as a catch all on your desk for bits and bobs.

Seal The Deal

"Hand Shake"
by Robert Nichols
19.5" x 16"

This piece of vintage art is a must have in your collection!  The piece was made in 1970 by well known artist Robert Nichols.  The piece is paper construction cut in the shape of the original deal maker, the individual pieces are attached creating depth in the piece.  The birch frame and double matting further enhance the greatness of this vintage piece.  I hesitated adding this post because it has been one of my favorite pieces in the store since I started, but as the old saying goes, if you love something you have to let it go!

Infinite Possibilities...

Solar System Mobile
53.25" x 17.75"

Gazing in the night sky we wonder about the size and scope of the universe. Within that magnitude our solar system seems infinite and overwhelming.  Thus the creation of the mobile, offering a much needed glimpse of the solar system as a whole but small enough to float perfectly in your home.  This mobile will fascinate the young in age and the youthful at heart, and serve as a constant reminder of just how truly unique the world we live in is!

The Icing On The Cake

Sculptural Cedar Block Chair
36" x 24" x 37"

This stately chair is sure to be the center of conversation when hosting your next cocktail party.  The chair is hand carved with a concave seat from a single block of cedar, a massive feat in itself, but what makes this piece shine is the hand water gilding in 12 karat white gold done by gifted artist Carol Leskanic.  It is the perfect finishing touch, adding a hint of glitz and glam and breathing a whole new life into an already spectacular piece.

Need a pair?  Please contact Jonathan for details.
