Using locally sourced urban timber that would normally end up in the landfill, I create beautiful heirloom quality wooden bowls and chopsticks. I personally turn the bowls on a lathe and make several different sizes and shapes. Some are for decoration, but most are made to be used every day. While I enjoy making the chopsticks myself, the real pleasure comes from having a process that allows the customer to actually make their own set of custom chopsticks. I cannot understate the joy I see people experience when they are able to spend 5-10 minutes and end up with something functional and beautiful.
