“Running Wild” One of a Kind theme Desk

“RUNNING WILD” One of a kind theme desk

This desk was part of our “One of a Kind” theme desks. Made from “Forest Reclaimed” Juniper it features hand carving  throughout the desk. Those being, the door handles, drawer face, desk sides, top drawer sides and on both sides of the painting. stippling was created on all the edges and turquoise was inlayed into the natural cracks. We even created a river of Turquoise on the edge of one side, that has some horseshoes inlayed in it (see inset above). This piece was a collaboration between ourselves and two other New Mexico Artists. The original oil painting of the wild horses was created by Victoria Mauldin from Ruidoso NM and the handforged brass horseshoe pulls and inlays were handmade  by Donna Spray from Alto, NM. The collaboration makes this piece not only one of a kind, but adds to the overall unique character of it.

The desk also includes a low back desk chair (picture coming soon). The chair has all the features of our low back chairs with the carved seat and hand shaped arms and backrest. The wheel base adjusts up and down, tilts and swivels and we disquised the metal with hand shaped wood.

The idea behind doing these theme desks, is to have “One of a Kind” pieces for those discriminating individuals to show off in their home or office. We strive to ensure that each creation has unique qualities, special features such as the carving, and to collaborate with other artists. Thus far we have had three different themes (please visit our desk page on our website to see the others), but the ideas are limitless.
