It's been a crazy 2 weeks here at the studio. We are printing a new series of Limited Edition prints for the fall, finalizing production on our second Advent Calendar and in the midst of this, packing up our Moderne Farm and Wood animals headed to Design Within Reach for their holiday catalog. At the end of the day yesterday, as the last of the horses were leaving the work table for their boxes we saw these wood dust outlines. They reminded us of the cave paintings in France, which was a wonderful surprise because those painting were the original inspiration for the wooden animal series. Looking at the almost ghostly forms I felt myself slipping into the timeless, universal, creative dream we all share with nature - an endlessly inspiring dream that can make simple, exquisite, momentary treasures from wood dust.
