ariele alasko is carving things...

ariele alasko is a furniture builder and woodworker living in brooklyn n.y. ariele utilizes woods that come from the walls of hundred year old buildings, (and there are many due to so many home and business renovations). and look at what she does with it...
according to ariele, each piece takes "days or even weeks to complete as every strip of wood is cut individually to attain a perfect fit." i love every piece she creates, (see much more of ariele's work here, and here, including this amazing headboard!) but i'm somehow drawn to her spoons. they are strong and gentle in appearance, all at the same time. natural and special. i hope you enjoy her story and her product today as much as i do! enjoy...

*just a note, ariele does used reclaimed or older woods in the making of her patterned tables and headboards but not in the making of her amazing spoons or cutting boards.
