About

In May of 2015 I began working as an Apprentice Builder in digital furniture fabrication, at The California Workshop in Costa Mesa, California. Through this apprenticeship I learned CAD modeling, safe laser operation and maintenance, furniture assembly and finish work. As I began to explore the principles, ideas and techniques that were introduced to me at The California Workshop, I came up with my own designs that enabled me to develop my skills further in the techniques I had been taught. As I began to share my designs and fabrications with friends and family with lots of positive feedback, I decided to open an Etsy shop to make them available to everyone. I opened EclecticOx in November 2015.

I have always enjoyed making things and working with my hands. I love drawing, painting, gardening, sewing, photography, woodworking, design, cooking and more. The principles of reuse, recycling, conservation, efficiency, simplicity and sustainability are very important to me and influence my designs and choice of materials. All of the wood I have used for my products so far, has come from scrap FSC certified wood at The California Workshop. I create my products there at the workshop and at home in my garage. I feel lucky to have access to the workshop, scrap wood, and my amazing mentor there, Michael Towey. I'm pleased that I can share my fabrications here on Etsy as I continue to learn and grow.
