About the art: These handmade pieces are formed of off-cuts from other projects. Each piece is many times re-born: from trees to homes or floors or sheds, reclaimed to become a pice of furniture and these creatures from its scraps. The woods include maple, walnut, purple heart, padauk and cherry.

About Jan Stott: I’ve always liked making things out of things that used to be other things. In my woodworking, any type of salvaged wood appeals to me - the remnants of an old barn, a neighbor’s discarded cabinet, pallets from the paint store. Every bit of spent material has a new life in it if you just look.
