About the maker:
A maker since her youth, Mary creates beautiful, hardworking functional tools utilizing materials from our landscape that reflect the history from which they stem, while gathering a deeper understanding of that traditional knowledge and the materials used along the way. Function, form, and tradition play equal parts in her work, which is informed by the seasons. Salt and Spruce starts with land based traditions - what materials to use, when to collect them, how to process them. The use and need behind the design of each basket or broom. The history it comes from, and the reason for its development. Even the techniques are storied and thoughtful: Stitches and methods and ways passed down from maker to maker. Traditional knowledge rooted in the landscape and born of necessity, passion and ingenuity. A single mom, Mary and her kiddo live in a gorgeous old barn-to-home conversion, along with a farm consisting of a cat, a rabbit, and a sheep.
