Della is the spouse of artist Don Wood. They like to say that Della is “Earth” and Don is “Wood” of their studio name “EarthenWood Studio.
Don is a self-taught master craftsman. His interest in the beauty within the wood began as a youth working with his father and grandfather.
He says that his passion was ignited while working with a German master woodworker in Hawaii.
Don not only has a keen eye for artistically blending various types of wood but his precision and attention to detail allows him to tailor fit his custom made rocking chairs to each individual’s personal measurements.
His artistic eye and his well honed skill for perfection shows in each table, chair, rocking chair, and unique wooden piece he creates.
