This shrine is made from Old-growth Yellowwood Pine salvaged from the staircase of a Victorian house. The lifespan of this Yellowwood Pine was likely well over 100 years before being felled to become used in a home from the Victorian era; Evident by its exceptionally tight grain pattern. Now over 200-years-old, this beautiful wood lives on as a sacred object.

Create sacred space in your home for quietude and heart-centered living with these personal shrines. Each one is individually handmade from my collection of reclaimed hardwoods that have been salvaged from old barns, instruments, buildings, junk piles; each piece chosen for its inherent integrity of quality and character. Through a process of carving, sanding, and waxing each piece of wood undergoes a reincarnation of its weathered beauty to become a sacred object for holding your devotion to the image you choose to place in its frame.
