Charcoal Wood Pedestal
Whether it’s a sculpture, found object, or plant, everything looks better elevated on a wood pedestal, especially if that pedestal is handmade using local sustainable wood by artisans at Atuto in Honduras. Perfectly imperfect, like nature intended. The charcoal finish is inspired by the centuries old Japanese technique of Shou Sugi Ban, charring wood, these pieces add natural drama to still lifes.
Atuto founder, Holland Millis, has worked with skilled craft-workers in Honduras for decades. A former Peace Corps volunteer from North Carolina, he leads the Atuto group in Sabanagrande, Honduras, which produces pieces made from clay, metal, stone, fiber, and wood.
