ABOUT-

Christina is the maker of custom furniture. Her woodwork is based on the island of North Haven in Maine's Penobscot Bay.  

"I began this journey as a carpenter building for function and evolved into a woodworker creating from inspiration; a place where function dovetails art and enjoyment."

 

Process and Intent-

Behind every custom piece of furniture there is a unique story, however every story begins with the same vision. To exceed the clients' vision of beautiful, functional, and original design. To create innovative pieces of furniture coupled with artistic applications for people to engage with their environment. 

"I intend for each piece of furniture to be versatile; useful and lasting, while intriguing interest and engagement."

Each piece of furniture is handmade in a small scale wood studio. Christina strives to use a palette of hardwoods native to the Northeast. Every piece of rough timber is hand selected for its unique qualities such as color, pattern, and texture. Embracing the unique characters and colors of each material is an integral part of design.  

Christina draws her inspiration from the vast beauty of nature that surrounds her. This inspiration can be seen in the angles, tapers, and design details but also in the joinery, how each piece of wood meets to create form.

While clients tend to have a general idea of what they are looking for in a sought after piece of furniture, they depend on Christina to add unique details that make each piece truly original to enjoy for years to come.
