In 1977 Ken Workowski came across an article on building willow furniture in Mother Earth News–the perfect opportunity to combine his carpentry skills with his love of nature. Thus began a home business for Ken and his wife Michelle, The Nature of Things, building home furnishings with such materials as willow, birch and poplar bark. Their one-of-a-kind pieces are sold through art shows and shops across the U.S. www.thenatureofthingsonline.comNo tags for this post.
