We are proud to be juried in the Chester County Craft guild. Our useful and beautiful artwork mixes multiple medias to create unique gifts and decorations.

The wood and rock are cut and polished from raw materials to retain their natural beauty. We also produce Nantucket style baskets made out of reed or colored fishing line with handmade bases and handles.
