Most of my creations are inspired by natureâs organic forms, colors, and textures, as well as, its creatures. While each piece is an object dâart, many of them also serves as a useful object. A celebration of the environment that nurtures us all, each creation is hand-crafted and one-of-a kind.
All of âIn the Shade of the Sycamore Treeâ creations are original designs and are individually hand-crafted. The handmade quality and creativity are what set my work apart from mass-produced products. Color, size, and texture variations contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.
I hope that you have as much fun looking and shopping as I have creating!
