I've been working with Grapewood lately for it's natural look, attractive form, and excellent durability, plus it is a renewable resource!
Love the curvy appeal and funky style...here is what came out of my first design.
I never create anything I would not want to have in my own home, this design is like a piece of art adding some whimsy and style to an entryway or mantle (maybe yours!). Yes, it tends on the Seussical (is that a word?) side...however, being transported to grand imagination destinations such as Whoville is really not that bad.. now is it?
Have a fun day!
