Hey y’all –
Welcome to the new site of Cactus & Ivy! The site has been given new life, and I’m so excited for all the changes that have taken place.
Drawing from my younger days of building things with my daddy, to constructing a house with my husband, I decided to use the skills I’ve learned over the years, and combine them with my desire to create. I’ve always had a knack for reinventing myself.
Cactus & Ivy is slowly coming together. In 2018, my husband began turning beautiful pieces of wood into bowls. I’m quite fond of no two items looking the same, and the hand turned bowls held true to my expectations.
We are in the process of drying wood we’ve collected over the past 6 months to a year. The product pages will be filled once we have additional products finished. Moisture content in wood plays a crucial role as to when you can begin constructing a product. I’m not a very patient person, so I am learning to be.
In addition to the variety of woodwork we are making by hand, I am utilizing other elements of nature, and my travels, to give our products a one-of-a-kind feel and look. I love the look of metal and wood together, and the colors found in nature, can be quite soothing. Farmhouse style is also a big influence.
I do hope you will check back with us as we continue to grow, or subscribe via the right sidebar, so new posts and updates will be delivered to your inbox. If you are interested in a custom piece, please contact us about your product needs.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
