'Tenebras' is taken from the Latin saying 'post tenebras lux,' translated as 'light after darkness'. This refers to what we do, transporting the darkness inside a tree into the light. Our pieces are made by hand in Michigan with locally harvested woods. We take pride in what we do, and we want you to take pride in what you purchase.

"the darkness inside the tree they shared
now instantly exposed to the blunt
light of this clear November day,

all the inner twisting of the grain
that held them blindly
in their augmentation and contortion

now rushed into this brightness
as if by a shutter
that, once opened, can never be closed."

-Billy Collins
