The Makers Crate Company welcomes a talented new addition to its team of makers: Larry Cluchey of Neustadt, ON.
Since 1990, Larry has been making finely crafted wood turnings from Southern Ontario hardwoods: heirloom quality one piece salad bowls, unique burl wood bowls, vases and hollow forms, as well as an assortment of small functional kitchen items, decorative tureen and cutting boards. Recipient of numerous awards, his work has attracted many patrons far and wide. He lives in a century old field-stone schoolhouse and works from a small studio on the property.
“I’m absolutely in awe of trees. And wood, what a wonderful versatile material: strong, durable, soft and warm. The smell, the texture, the endless grain and colour variations, always a delight to the senses.”
His elegant, one-of-a-kind creations really bring an exquisite piece of natural beauty into the home. We are very pleased to offer Larry’s stunning live-edge hardwood vases to our product offerings. And over the next couple of weeks we will be adding two more of his wonderful creations: tealight holders and wine stoppers. Stay tuned!
