The following materials are available for furniture projects: Wood choices include alder, walnut, oak, pine, basswood, maple, poplar and a variety of salvaged-recycled lumber. Finishes are oil-wax, paint or lacquer.
Metal products include steel, brass and aluminum in the form of plate ,tubular and angle. Finish choices are hot or cold patinas and powder coats.
Stone slabs of limestone, marble, slate, granite and flagstone are also available.
Ceramic sculpture is a recent exploration into the creation of abstract figurative and nature inspired forms. The clay pieces are heavily burnished and sawdust fired at a low temperature. A primitive or ancient surface finish is the end result. Further experimentation with various clay bodies and glazes will allow for future integration of sculptural ideas and furniture design.
