Description

“I was inspired by crafts I saw in galleries and thought that the experience I had using natural materials as well as recycled ones might lead to some interesting creations. After reading a number of books on birdhouse construction, I began moving my designs away from the predictable and into more creative and individual pieces.

The wood I find provides the basis for the products I create. My goal is to produce pieces which possess rustic beauty and functionality, while in the process giving new life to old, unusual, or discarded materials.”

Walt Cottingham

I have lived in the Southern Appalachians for most of my life, and have been creating craft pieces since childhood. I use natural materials, such as mountain laurel, hollow logs, and slabs, as well as recycled material from old buildings and sawmills, to create interesting pieces of rustic beauty and functionality. My primary work today is in building birdhouses, ornaments, and tables.
