Artisans Alive!

In the Shop


Today was memorable indeed. Jason Bedre delivered this exquisite hand crafted (yes, with hand tools and all-wood joins) mahogany perfume organ we designed. Jason is a true Renaissance Man,  a patented chemist who is passionate about maintaining the art of traditional wood working.

I can only say that it turned out exactly as I envisioned it. This shows some of the richness of the grain.

Please allow me to show you (I apologize for the poor images from my scratchy iPhone, better to come).
Installed on top of desk


 The drawers glide like silk over skin.
Loaded and ready to PLAY
And play we did. Shari G came by to sample the blends I've been working on for Charm School. We may end up with something totally different in the end, but what fun to explore the realm of scent and natural perfume making together! 
She's my muse, and I have to push myself out of my comfort zone to imagine what will enchant the Charm School Fashion-Perfumista.
