"We have been handcrafting wooden kitchen utensils, breadboards and furniture for 25 years. We only work with sustainable domestic hardwoods, specifically Mesquite, Cherry and Black Walnut. We use the natural flaws in the wood to inlay turquoise, malachite, river rock and other stones. Utilizing the inherent natural cracks and knots we are able to use really interesting pieces of wood that otherwise would never see their full potential. Everything we create is fully functional and is meant to be used. Often we hear from customers that our work is too pretty to use but we disagree. We feel that life is to short not to surround yourself with beauty."
The Siscos' work is made exclusively form North American hardwoods including black walnut, cherry, and mesquite. "These are all hard, tight-grained woods" explains Christine. "We provide food products, so all our creations are non-toxic and safe."
