Spirit of the Tetons

“The spirit of the Tetons”, is a smaller desk with matching chair. We love the Tetons and wanted to capture the beauty and majesty of our favorite mountain range. Sitting at this desk is so peaceful and inviting. The carved birds that perch on the branches are Cassin’s finches. They are native to the area around the Tetons. The bead work on the chair is of Sioux design. They inhabited this region, and felt the great mountains were a sacred and spiritual place. All these elements combined have created a unique and memorable work of art.

Western Design Conference piece

This is another piece that we collaborated on. “Spirit of the Tetons” is our work for the Western Design Conference.
These are not great images, I will post those when I get them from the photographer. You get the idea and feel of this new piece though. The birds are Cassin’s finches, which are found around the Teton area. This is the most peaceful desk to sit at, I love it. Sadly, it will either sell at the show, or go to the Turpin Gallery. Not back home with me.
