Laurent & Pollyanna are a husband and wife team. Both are scientists, conservation advocates and world travelers. Laurent learned some woodworking from his Dad and the rest out of sheer necessity and curiosity. There were household needs and local wood was available.
Laurent began working on large projects. He builds beautiful, organic shaped bars, tables and furniture several years ago. His interest and experience in wood working continues to grow. With the addition of two sons (born a minute apart) more creative projects kept popping up. Laurent partners on some large scale projects (and shares a workshop) with Jen Homcy of FoundWood. They take pride in using reclaimed hardwoods that would otherwise be wasting away at the dump or getting chomped on by termites.
Laurent focuses on large furniture projects and his specialty are live edge bar tops, blue glass inlays and tables. His goal is to use a large slab of wood keeping it’s integrity and natural beauty. He loves incorporating water features mimicking our environment into artistic, functional art.
Laurent designs, shapes and finishes all the furniture & buckles, while Pollyanna handles online media, photography and outreach. Of course, we are ever so grateful to many friends and family have helped along the way. As part of our commitment to giving back to the environment, 5% of all sales are donated to local non-profit organizations involved in native forest restoration here on Oahu.
