Birdmouse? Well, much like birds and mice - they scurry around collecting materials to create art + furniture for your nest. They have a deep respect for nature and its species diversity. By using reclaimed wood, they get to preserve some of that natural forest habitat. They like how their name reflects their love of nature and its inhabitants.
Lenny Gallant has worked with several mediums (pencil, charcoal, acrylics, sculpture, music) and began working with wood in 2010. Lenny approaches each piece he creates much like he would a painting: he selects each piece of wood based on its colour, texture and how these features will influence the overall aesthetic of the finished piece. He must also consider the woods' weight and strength as it contributes to the piece's functionality and quality.
Heather Gallant then takes Lenny’s off cuts to make smaller items like cribbage boards and jewellery so that hardly any of this gorgeous walnut, maple, fir, or cedar gets left behind.
