I love beautiful handcrafted timber pieces. The life of the tree is displayed lovingly before your eyes and the silky touch of such a piece is a joy. Caleb Woodard is an artisan woodworker whose organic creations are celebrations of a dying craft and a dwindling resource. Mass produced is a necessity but handcrafted is an artwork to be cherished. Caleb's fiance and partner in developing this enterprise, Melanie told me that Caleb specializes in an organic woodworking aesthetic with live edges and midcentury touches - he's inspired by artists from George Nakashima to Vladimir Kagan. Take the time to visit his website and explore his philosophy. Inspiring.

"I've just discovered your blog (and spent far too much time enjoying the
images). We've just about finished building our mudbrick home in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, and there are a few bits and pieces that may interest you ...." Cecilia.
The Duckpond is Jon & Cecilia Sharpley's photo journal that follows the progress of the building of their special home. It's an inspiring visit for anyone with an interest in energy efficient, alternative, or sustainable building. These are just a few photos of their hand forged balustrades, fallen gum branch bed and stick handles. Thanks Cecilia. You have a wonderful and environmentally sensitive home!
