Welcome to dreamer9! A collection of hand-made altars and objects for sacred spaces.

Fantastic guy to deal with...thanks so much!!
My shop is about objects for sacred spaces: meditation and yoga spaces, living rooms and bedrooms.
I've always liked woodwork and art. As a kid my grandfather made carved wooden chains that fascinated me. My first woodworking piece as a kid was a driftwood branch torn from a cottonwood by one of the frequent and treacherous floods in the river next to which we lived. I carved it with a drawknife to bring out the contours.
At UT Austin I studied Japanese Language and Culture and went to teach in Japan after graduation, on the JET Program. I returned to UT for a couple of years of art school and then moved to Hawaii.
Later, when I found myself as the shrine keeper at the shrine room at the gorgeous Shambahla Meditation Center in Boulder, Colorado, it occurred to me that I would like to make personal altars and shrines.
Most recently I've published a novel called "Beneath the Universe" and added some photography and simple crafts like yoga bracelets. I try to bring the joy to my shop and to you.

I grew up in Central Texas and have lived in Japan, Hawaii and Colorado. The photo is from Arches NP. I make coffee tables and altars from "urban rescue" lumber, fallen trees from local ranches. I'm the author of "Beneath the Universe".
