Artist team Terry Snow & Sarah Snow collaborate to make turned, carved and pyrographed sculpture and gifts out of wood with surprising juxtapositions, exceptional craftsmanship and a touch of chaos.
We are a highly collaborative husband and wife artist team who consult each other throughout the creative process. We thrive on surprising juxtapositions and exceptional craftsmanship. Our greatest joy is sharing ideas and turning them into a reality together. The results are a delightful balance of masculine and feminine, both delicate and bold. We especially enjoy making each other laugh and hope that our delight transcends each piece.
We usually start with a piece of wood. We like to use locally sourced wood picked up during big brush collection days, but these pieces take time to "season". Which means we have to wait up to a year or more before the wood is stable enough to work, so we also purchase some environmentally sustainable hardwoods.
Two prize pieces of equipment stand out in our shop: the wood turning lathe and the pyrography machine. Terry has honed the craft of turning wood and Sarah of burning decorative designs on it. However, we frequently diverge as inspiration takes us. In addition to the bowls, vessels and magic wands that Terry turns he also carves, cuts, shapes, and assembles wood and other materials in multifaceted ways. Likewise, Sarah may use paint, collage or other various means to enhance our unique one-of-a-kind creations.
Our craftsmanship is rooted in woodworking traditions but we strive for original and unique outcomes. Our motto: Out of Chaos Woods comes curiosities!
