Welcome to Artistic Sticks!
Boys and Sticks
All boys like to play with sticks - some of them grow out of it, and some don't. Jeff didn't. He loves to collect sticks and then see how they fit together to make stickwork furniture. Each piece is truly one of a kind. The logs, branches roots and sticks are chosen for their durability and unique characteristics. Some of our pieces have included up-cycled wood from pallets, adding a distinctive flair to our products.
After over 30 years as a carpenter, Jeff discovered a new interest in building stick furniture. He learned how to hand-hew logs into usable materials, then refine them using a draw knife and hand planes. It's been enjoyable to have a much quieter atmosphere and a lot less sawdust all over the place.
The design of many pieces starts with a unique design element or the discovery of a quirky log, branch or tree root. While the idea for a piece may come as a full picture, the reality is always dictated by the twists and turns of the available materials.
