The Birdhouses

Our birdhouses are built  using reclaimed wood, driftwood, tree branches, twigs, rocks, natural moss, fungi, and lichen that are responsibly harvested and naturally preserved. The details like mushrooms, tree spirits, and gnomes, are hand carved out of cedar branches or driftwood.

Fully functional, every birdhouse features ventilation under the eaves, drainage holes on the bottom, a side cleanout door, and a metal ring around the entrance hole to keep predators away,  providing a safe and adequate environment for birds to nest and roost.

The  1 ¼” diameter hole used is ideal for all small bird varieties like nuthatches, chickadees, titmice, house wrens, juncos, warblers, finches, and more.

When you buy or receive one as a gift, you know it’s proudly made right here in Tacoma, our little corner of the Pacific Northwest.Our

The Carvings

I like to imagine that every piece of tree bark has a face in it, hiding beneath its’ weathered surface.

It is my art to reveal that face and to uncover its expression, which are almost human; expression of joy, peace, kindness, humour, doubt and compassion.


The Upcycled totes

Upcycling, also known as creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new materials or products perceived to be of greater quality, such as artistic value or environmental value.

Did you know most coffee beans are transported in burlap bags, a woven fabric made from the jute plant?
These burlap bags are strong, durable, breathable, naturally water-resistant, and better yet: biodegradable! 

Each bag has unique markings and prints and a unique International Coffee Organization mark used to identify the bean source. Essentially, each bag is like its own passport, and each has a unique story, making these bags perfect candidates for reusing and upcycling.

Our upcycled totes are the perfect zero-waste bag for travel, yoga, beach, gym, pool, grocery, farmer’s markets, and so much more. The most convenient carry-on bag you’ll find anywhere. Made from used coffee bean sacks, they are heavy duty, stylish, eco-friendly, and extremely durable, and take up little space in your luggage when they’re empty!

We believe that when you purchase something handmade, you are buying more than just an object.

You’re buying countless hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks, and months of frustration and moments of ‘pure joy’. You are not just buying a thing, you’re buying a piece of heart, an insight into someone’s soul, a moment of someone’s life.
More importantly, you are giving the artist confidence in their product, a chance to develop their skills further, and an opportunity to support themselves and to re-invest the money back into their business and community.

Thank you for your support!
