"I meticulously search and hand pick each barrel looking for several things to include special markings. I use a lot of hand tools to make each piece one of a kind. Lots are similar but each piece has its own character. Today we have a lot of manufactured product out there and it's easy to forget real authentic craftsmanship which makes for long lasting and eye catching products. I chose to work on wine barrels because there's already history in each piece which makes owning an item more meaningful. The barrels are also oak which is a hard wood and will last a lifetime." - Artist
