I’m incredibly impressed by anyone who can manipulate and sculpt wood into anything more than a sharp point. These pieces from AJ Fosik have been on my radar for awhile, transforming the traditional hunting trophies by layering hundreds of wooden pieces to form these confrontational bestial sculptures saturated in a psychedelic color palette.

Ariele Alasko creates one-of-kind furniture and fixtures from 100% salvaged and recycled materials at her shop Brooklyn to West. This headboard is absolutely gorgeous, so understandably her pieces fly off the shelf. No worries she takes custom orders on her headboards and tables. This past summer Ariele finished “The Big Table“, watch the making in the video below.

I’ve been ogling these wall mount hooks in the shapes of US States for months. I want to buy one for every state that I’ve lived in (Nebraska, Illinois, California, Texas and Massachusetts). You can choose from a wide range of colors for the base and hooks. Check out the Etsy shop for Old New Again.

As the founder of Snedker Studios, Pernille Snedker Hansen uses nature as her inspiration for creating surfaces to challenge the aesthetics of interior spaces. By combining western marbling with Japanese suminagashi, Pernille emphasizes the growth rings with vibrant pigments in her appropriately titled work Marbelous Wood.
As a student at North Bennet Street School, I had the opportunity to learn and practice marbling. It’s a fascinating process, where pigments float and spread on top a watery surface and once you lay your paper down the pigments are captured into the fibers.
