Clock's, bowls, jewelry, hand-dyed & painted fabric

Situated on a hilltop in southern Brown County, two generations of woodworkers, Joe and Sawyer Henderson, live and work in a family compound of house, workshop, gallery and barn. Joe's workshop is a short walk rom the back door, and Peggy's workroom is situated with a view of the bird feeder and the woods beyond.

Joe was drawn to the beauty and nature of wood while splitting firewood. This interest in wood has led to many projects, from spoon and bowl carving, cabinetmaking, furniture, to clock making and collaborating with Peggy on baskets and sculptural weavings.

Sawyer Henderson also enjoys working with wood and his sculpted utensils, some incorporating antlers, are for sale in the gallery.

Most of the hardwoods used to create their clocks, ladles, bowls and small furniture come from their surrounding property.

The Hendersons share their hilltop with perennial, annual, vegetable and gourd gardens, sheep, chickens, dogs, and occasionally their children and grandchild.

Color, texture, and dimension are the key elements in the weavings Peggy creates. Surface design is as important as shape in her functional and sculptural pieces. Materials vary from piece to piece, but include reed, hardwoods, sea grass, beads, feathers, and yarn. Peggy's weavings range from a storage basket with a spalted maple lid, to a free-standing urn with cherry accents, to a wall-hanging inspired by Brown County's hills and valleys. Many of her pieces are accented with wood in either a functional or artistic way. Recent work has expanded to include pyrography on gourds and jewelry design. Both artists exhibit in nationally recognized art shows, and have been the recipients of numerous awards.
