Katelyn Joliat just opened the doors to her new Toronto boutique, Far Away Eyes and I had the privilege of making a few pieces for the shop. There were a couple of bumps in the road along the way, but the pieces are in their new home now. Enjoy them Katelyn!
Far Away Eyes is located at 295 Queen St. East in Toronto and is stocking a carefully curated, cool and eclectic selection of jewelry, clothing, housewares and gift items. So, if you live in Toronto or you’re gonna be passing through then you should probably stop in.
Yesterday I packed this on to a skid and put it on a truck, today it arrived at it’s new home. It’s a reception desk for an office space in Liberty Village here in Toronto.
The wood I used for this project is Pine from the Queen’s Wharf. A variety of wood species were salvaged from this historic structure when it was unearthed in 2006, I have used them all and they are all gorgeous. Because the wood spent so much time underground the minerals in the soil leeched into the wood and gave it a very unique color palette.
This might be my new favorite piece, maybe just because I love the odd but beautiful coloring of the wood so much. I dont know.
I recently finished this desk made with reclaimed Oak barn board and a chemically blackened steel base (the same process used to blacken firearms).
