by Margaret Taylor
Handcrafted in Georgia
There are some materials that have heart and soul. It can be the paint, the texture or maybe the history that is carried on. The intrinsic beauty of these materials is what inspired Margaret Taylor to begin creating. Working beside her father on house projects was her training ground. through those experiences margaret gained the necessary knowledge, as well as the belief that she could make anything. Her creations, which began as a hobby, have evolved into a solid business of 15 years. dryads dancing began with picture frames and birdhouses and has now expanded to include garden art, mirrors and furniture.
The recent development of working with artists / designers like Simone Wilson has introduced an exciting dimension to margaret's business. the objective in these relationships is to take a piece of art and make it affordable and available while still retaining its uniqueness.
Simone R. Wilson is a self-taught artist born in atlanta, georgia. She is an obsessive scavenger and rescuer of materials from the past. At the age of nine she was given her first pocketknife by her grandfather Hugh Hartin, after whom her studio is named. Her first whittling project was a slingshot, made from a carefully chosen tree branch, innertube rubber from a tractor tire, the tongue of an old boot and some string. The passion for assemblage, necessity of form and function and her love of wood and reclaimed materials was born.View All Items By Dryads Dancing by Margaret Taylor Custom Design Center
