Claydirondack

 

Introducing a  new twist on a traditional style of folk furniture.  Instead of using wood for the slats in the seat and back, stoneware pottery slabs are used.  Designed for a "Florida room" or a casual den, the Claydirondack is sure to be a conversation piece for your guests for many years to come. The design was several years in the thought process and some trial and error.  Each chair represents approximately 70 hours of work. The finished product is  very comfortable and will be a treasure in your home! Call 865-430-3387 for color availability and shipping. Price: $1,200.00

Wormy Red Oak Claydirondack

Red Oak tree was left standing after it died to allow the worms to feast. This creates "worm holes" in parts of the wood to add visual texture.

Blue Poplar is wood where particular minerals in the soil cause the wood to stripe. The white glaze has manganese specs to offer some visual texture and to highlight the dark streaks in the wood.
