The Salt Lake City based woodworker and maker behind this month’s Makers Alongside collaboration is Lynsey Schlegel of Love Lynsey. Lynsey’s educational background in Industrial Design as well as her previous work experience as a display artist helped her develop her own style and point of view which she has channeled into her business specializing in unique homegoods made of wood and metal.
Lynsey hand-selects each piece of wood used to create her pieces, which include bowls, serving boards, wall hangings, and tables; she delights in the unique patterns in the grain, naturally occurring knots or worm holes. In addition to textures or shapes in nature, architecture, art and fashion, Lynsey notes Japanese and Scandinavian design as a major source of inspiration. “I love the simplicity and thoughtfulness behind how things are designed,” she says.
We’ve collaborated with Love Lynsey to design a batch of eight elegant and timeless bowls, available June 15 on our website, made of cherry wood with a copper base. While we think this makes the perfect jewelry catch for your bedside or chest of drawers, its versatility allows it to be utilized in any space.
