Beautiful piece of art! I'm building a new house and I get more compliments on this light than I do anything, it is so unique! Only issue was shipping. The item does not ship as quickly as the shop states. It took about 5 weeks to get the item. Well worth the wait if ur not in any hurry..comes with plenty of cord

About

Being a full time artist is a whole lot of fun!

A few years ago I started my little company out of my garage, just like most people and had no idea what I was doing. Struggling for space, I just wanted to design and build fun items after a lifetime of designing and building for others, I finally made the jump to artist and never looked back.

When I opened my very first shop, it was just my dog and I every day. I did all jobs from creating art, organizing the shop, writing all emails to scrubbing the toilet. As demand for my beautiful art increased I found other talented and crazy artists who share my vision. Surrounding myself with fun, positive people and dogs to create world class art and designs.

Our shop is located in the heart of wine country and is a one of a kind place. Not a lot of shops have disco balls and water gun stations and we have so much fun its like a bunch of five year olds with power tools. Everything we create is made to order so its the perfect fit for your home or business and we are proud to be 100% green and made in the USA.

Welcome to Wine Country Craftsman

We specialize in creating tables, furniture and art out of 60-100 year old retired grape vines from California's premiere wine growing region.

These retired grapevines have brought joy to generations of wine drinkers. Though their winemaking days are behind them, their distinctive character lasts on. Decades of careful cultivation combined with the vines natural tendency to create their own whimsical chaos yields striking compositions. With some careful shaping and finishing, each piece becomes a work of art suitable for warming the heart of a true wine lover.

After its retirement from wine production, each piece is pruned by hand to reveal, preserve and promote the essence of its form. In a process that takes over a week, the vine visits a series of craftsmen for finishing.

The result speaks for itself. Each vine has its own character, some seeming to rest in serene meditation, some to dance in playful glee. Look. Touch. The warmth of the wood invites your fingers to trace contours, follow branches, contemplate the flow of life which took a century to express itself in the shape you see before you.

Combined into a table, these limbs create new shapes with every new angle, beckoning freshly in rich play of dimensions. Like a fine wine, the tables are rich, complex and always offer something new to the senses. What better way to honor your wine? Serve it on a work of art that celebrates the natural forces that created the grape.

I take pride on providing my customers with the best quality products and expert personal service.

I take enormous pride in creating my products and hope that you will find something that you will enjoy. I can also create custom orders. Please let me know what I can do for you.


All My products are proudly made here in the USA!
