By local artists Jessica Silvey & Plumbbob. The woods, the forest, the bush, however you refer to these amazing timberlands we live amongst here on the beautiful west coast, we all have a similar experience when we enter into these moss filled havens: we see the depths of varying shades of green, hear the sounds of streams, birds singing, the rustle of leaves in the wind, smell the earth, moss and nurse tree’s that bring new life, the woods caress us and regenerate us… We want you to see the passion we pour into each piece that we make by hand, these creations that have come “Out of the Woods”.

by Catherine Nicholls & Elizabeth Harris bro·ken . . . damaged or altered, disrupted by change. Imagine a work that lasts for centuries: it ages, it cracks, it may be broken and repaired but the makers vision remains. Imagine what we create now being used, breaking, being mended and repaired, lost and then returned as treasures found. Elizabeth Harris and Catherine Nicholls explore the process of deconstruction in a form of “time travel” with our newly made relics and discover the beauty in the bro·ken. As makers we would be content to see our work live on, in whole or in pieces.
