This sculpture is a cairn, reinterpreted by me in five beautiful hard woods. Traditionally encountered as a heap of stones piled up as a memorial or a landmark, cairns have been used since ancient times to mark a special place or to guide travelers on their way.


"We gave this gift to my parents at our rehearsal dinner, and they loved it. It came with a neat card that explained the different types of wood. It was exactly the type of thoughtful gift we were hoping to give them on our special day." -- noratodd, Sept. 22, 2013


Elegant, minimalistic, modern yet rustic, and evocative of a woodland trail, my cairn consists of five wooden pieces, 3” to 5” wide and 4” tall in total and flat on two sides for ease of stacking. Stacking and restacking them is nearly as calming as holding one of the pieces in your hand, observing the wood’s grain and texture deeply.

This cairn would fit perfectly on an office desk, a coffee table, a book shelf, or even in a nursery—the cairn’s size and finish are safe for all ages. The calm act of stacking the wooden stone-shaped pieces together invites quiet observation and evokes almost a meditative, mindful state of mind.

I bring attention to these woods, simply beautiful in their own way, and then heighten your interaction with these objects of nature by presenting them as parts of a cairn. In this way, I accomplish my goal as an artist—to bring delight to people’s everyday lives and to encourage you to mindfully interact with my pieces as a break from your hectic day.


These high-quality, extremely durable hardwoods evoke ideas of a simpler time when all objects, even toys, were made to be long-lasting and beautiful.

My wooden cairns arrive in their own drawstring bag, ready to give as an heirloom gift.
