Spencer Peterman

For almost two decades, Spencer Peterman has given new life to the fallen trees he finds around his home in western Massachusetts. Rather than cutting down living trees, he finds fallen Maple, Walnut, and Cherry trees that have been allowed to begin the initial stages of decay. The partial decay, called Spalting, gives the wood beautiful contrasting lines and streaks where fungus has begun to attack the tree. We rescue the trees from the spalting process at the right time when the wood is still sound enough to work with. In order to prevent further decay and to make them food safe we slowly dry our boards for several weeks in our custom made kilns. Each one of our unique and beautiful products is a work of art that seems to tell a story. It is inspiring that Spencer creates such artful, live-edge boards, bowls, and utensils from wood that might otherwise have been ignored.
