During the long, snowy, winter I could not stop daydreaming about warmer, greener weather. Visiting local greenhouses was my great escape out of the cold where I could soak up some fresh oxygen and imagine I was somewhere tropical. On one of these excursions I found myself in the bromeliad section and started visualizing the possibilities of my woodworking and these gorgeous little plants going hand in hand. I had to wait until all the snow melted to break the saw out of the garage and get to work, but just in time for spring, my new planters are here, and ready for sale! http://www.etsy.com/listing/186572091/birch-tree-air-plant-holder?ref=shop_home_active_1
Keep a look out for my hanging wood slice planters, available soon!
This week, my wood burning has strayed from my norm. Usually I do all nature inspired, organic, designs, but this has been the week of words and numbers. It started with a few custom requests from friends and acquaintances. A date on a baseball bat, a pet food reminder magnet, a note for the delivery guy, and a clean/dirty dishwasher magnet. After the response I got to a picture I posted of the dishwasher magnet, I was pondering whether I should add it to my store, when I got a definitive sign that I should. So I made more. And the words just kept tumbling on after that. New nature slogan magnets, “take a hike” “stay wild” and “go explore” are a few in the new line up (coming soon)
What do you think of this direction?
I’ve been daydreaming of summer during these cold, seemingly endless, snowy, winter days. You can see where my mind is going in the subject matter of my latest projects. I’ve bee making a lot of landscape and camping scenes and new botanical studies, including these wood burned fern coasters. Hopefully spring will be here soon, here’s to hoping that the groundhog was wrong. These coasters, along with other designs are now available in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/ForageWorkshop
