Lotus Woodcrafts is a loving parnership. My husband does most of the woodworking and construction, and I finish and do the inlays and we both share in the creative process and innovations.
We consider each and every one of a kind endeavor an organic unfolding of the creative process. A closely knit homogeneous creation from the time a seed ripens to a tree crafted by the earth, to the moment the tree is felled, milled, and handled by carpenters and artisans usually into some form of structure and subjected to both time and the elements all adding character to the present form that is revealed as a piece of furniture that will hopefully continue to evolve beyond my hands.

We are a local green company, in Buffalo NY, only utilizing reclaimed wood from barns and other structures. We upcycle and repurpose metal objects and finds as well as gemstones and minerals into our furniture to enhance the character already present within the wood. We use a natural clear shellac and organic beeswax to preserve the wood. We consider ourselves artists who hone their carpentry, metal, jewelry and leather working skills to bring about the vision of each functional composition.
We believe everything in a home can be a useful and practical work of art, but at the same time be a piece of jewelry for your home.
The lotus is a symbol of pure, spontaneous generation and spiritual enlightenment. As an analogy for the human condition; from the harshest, dirtiest and murkiest conditions this resilient flower blooms high above the water with resplendent beauty. So taking the mud and muck, the discarded and transforming them into treasure just as the Lotus does is our mission.
