Blackened Oak & Rope Dune Hanging
Minimal design makes a striking visual impact in this wood and rope hanging. Made from white oak wood locally sourced from mills who save fallen trees from the chipper and mill into usable board feet. Blackened with an iron solution that reacts with the wood, not a stain. Finished with a natural moisturizing wood sealant. Strung on a cotton rope with subtle fringe effect on the bottom. Self-hanging. Measures approximately 24" long x 5.5" wide x 1" deep.

I believe that good things take time. Appreciation for the slow design process is another part of living with intention. Much like slowly stretching out of bed, smelling your morning coffee before taking the first sip, and stepping outside before the sun rises, to feel the crisp air against your cheek. It is part of living a life with purpose.
This is the woman I want to create for.
The woman who values the thought put into hand selecting wood that shows the perfect grain, who is enticed by the imperfect nature of block printing on warm, organic textiles, and who prefers that the hand formed clay beads are 'round-ish'. She appreciates that her new piece was shown care and love before it ever became a treasured part of her home.
