About the Artist:
By founder Allison Samuels, who currently works out of her studio in East Williamsburg, NY. Through an upbringing surrounded by forests, rivers and mountains, Samuels cultivated an early appreciation for the natural world. As such, her work emphasizes, and is dictated in part by, the unique properties she observes within raw material itself.
Allison values products that are consciously-made, in addition to being well-made. She seeks to work with the most earth-friendly materials possible, from wood sourcing to all natural finishes. She aims to keep her footprint small in the studio as well, from bringing her sawdust to local gardens for composting, to working with entirely reclaimed and scrap wood for her utensils and vases.
