A New Medium.

I absolutely LOVE this type of art form. I have always had the desire to widdle, let alone work with wood as a medium. I want to carve images into a big chair one day. Got to start somewhere, I should probably start with a branch.
 This female truly inspires me. Love her style let alone, approach to life. I LOVE industrial mixed with earthy touches, especially in a home/business/surroundings. I love inlaid wood work. Truly this is an incredible art form, she nails it perfectly.

About the artist (Ariel):
{This all began as the adventure of a lifetime, and it was. Taking a sixteen foot truck across the country, my dearest friend AMELIE and I drove for nine days, stopping at abandoned dinersfarms, junk stores, and anywhere else our love of the old and decrepit told us to stop. We arrived in California with a truck full of barn wood and old chairs, and that's where I began my six month journey of building and designing an entire restaurant from scratch -- building the bar and thirty tables myself! Having successfully completed the build, and with the restaurant up and running -- full every night! -- I returned to Brooklyn and am continuing my life of designing, creating, inventing, finding, thrifting, and building something everyday}.


I’m a builder, a fixer, and a do-it-myselfer. My favorite things in life are big tools, old wood, good pasta, and dumpster diving. I enjoy being a mixture of things: the woman who cooks and bakes, and the girl who runs table saws and nail guns, builds furniture, carries around screwdrivers in her purse, and can fix just about anything {minus cars}.
