Featured Artist: BK Wood Designs

Today we are featuring our friend Brian from BK Wood Designs.  We carry a collection of his beautiful wood boxes, pens and wine bottle stoppers.  Here’s a little more about him, in his own words.

“Hello, my name is Brian, and I run a small hobby woodworking shop in beautiful Northeastern Pennsylvania. I have always been a huge fan of nature and love to hike or mountain bike any chance I get. There’s nothing better than hiking through the woods, and you sit down to take a break on a fallen tree over a gently flowing stream and just listen to nature. It’s a sound that happens day and night, and never stops.

With my love for nature comes a love for log homes, and rustic furniture. This is why I got into woodworking. using natural elements adds a beauty that you can’t get from synthetic compounds. Take Spalting, for instance, which is technically wood starting to rot. This amazing process adds beautiful colors to wood you will never be able to re- create. I love to work with figured and contrasting woods.”

Spotlight On: Tokyobay Watches

 

 

time-well-spent

Established in 1991, TOKYObay is a San Francisco designed watch and accessory brand born out of a collaboration between two talented designers from two very different backgrounds. Jun Kobayashi, from Tokyo, and Dory Isaacs, originally from the UK and now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, came together as two friends with time on their minds.

The East meets West watch and accessory line is infused with everything from Jun’s days as a bassist in the popular niche group Flower Travelin’ Band to Dory’s upbringing in England as a passionate fashion student and ceramic studio owner. The result is a constantly evolving, unique fusion of Japanese minimalism and fashion-focused sensibilities.

Always stylish, well designed, full of color with good times in mind, TOKYObay is time well spent when dressing for the everyday.

“We came together over twenty years ago to create something different using our individual strengths and backgrounds in design and product development. We find continual inspiration in our work by combining new materials sourced from different countries and integrating unexpected textures and metal finishes. By experimenting with new looks and colors each season, we try to consistently evolve the line by mixing various eras with modern elements to bring both a familiar yet distinct look.”

Stop by The Shoppe to see this beautiful collection of time pieces.

Spotlight On: Himalayan Salt Lamps

in the spotlightIMG_9607

These beautiful lamps are made of natural crystal salt that is mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains.  The crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old, and as a result, has special properties and high mineral content.  The heat from the bulb causes the salt to emit negative ions.  These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them.  The newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground, removing them from air circulation.  Concisely, these lovely Himalayan Salt Lamps cleanse the air naturally, plus they’re beautiful!  Stop by The Shoppe to choose your one of a kind lamp.
