The power and beauty of these enormous century old timbers, repurposed from factory buildings, hay barns, and many other industrial platforms are the clear focal points for this collection.  Under the outer veneer where the bulk of time-marinating took place is a layer that still tells their story yet in a dressier more contemporary fashion. Nail holes, stains, and “checking” all provide clues of their battered lives, but the smooth oiled surface and straightened clean lines give the beams new grace and new life. Nothing fancy here, honest intention gives these beasts of burden a new day.
