Announcement   Welcome to Natura Obscura Art!

NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 23 ENTER CODE "ICE20" AT CHECKOUT TO RECEIVE 20% OFF YOUR ORDER OF $10 OR MORE!

As a separation from a lengthy career in commercial art, I have fallen in love with making one-of-a-kind pieces exclusively made with natural materials. Inspired by observed shapes, lines and textures within the material itself, by the natural environment I'm immersed in, by my meditations, or by the patterns and designs used for spiritual and metaphysical explorations throughout thousands of years, each piece is personal and tells a story of a certain place and time - of an intimate interaction between nature and my inner spirit, with a dash of designer sensibility.

Everything is burned, painted and stained by hand. You'll see no laser burned, machine made, mass produced stuff here, as I see the process of interacting with the wood as part of the beauty of art making, and therefore more special for you as the eventual owner.

I source materials either from my local hiking spot or from businesses within the woodworking community that either need to trim dry branches or procure wood from lumbar yards that would otherwise go in the incinerator. No happy, healthy trees have been harmed in the making of these goods :)

Custom orders are welcome as well! I love creating specific pieces for people, so just ask. If you see something you like in the store and it's not quite the right size, color, type of wood, etc., just message me and I'll see what I can do about creating a piece that is just right for you.

Returns and exchanges
Please note I do not accept order cancellations. I begin crafting your pieces upon receiving your order therefore I am already incurring cost when I receive notice of your purchase.

In general I do not accept returns. PLEASE ask questions ahead of time if you are not sure what you are ordering! You are purchasing items that are hand-crafted and are slightly imperfect by nature. However, if there are any problems with your item upon receipt (i.e. damage), please notify me immediately and I will do whatever I can to resolve the situation. I am reasonable and promise to be fair! ;)
Shipping
Items ready to ship in 3-5 days.

Most items shipped USPS priority mail. Some of the wall art items are larger in size and are less expensive to ship via UPS ground or FedEx ground, so they will be shipped with the least expensive option available.
Additional policies and FAQs
All designs copyright Kelly Lynn Johnston via Natura Obscura Art. Please do not use images of my designs for your purposes without obtaining permission. More than anything, I work hard making these objects of art, so please respect the original content.

Custom orders are welcome. I have been a product designer for many years and love working with retailers and interior designers to develop pieces, as well as making meaningful pieces for anyone in general!
