Summerville, SC

Tucked under a canopy of shade in an open wooden shed is where you'll find Sherial and Nancy Brinn carving their latest works. It's a place where time slows and the hustle and bustle of today's technology goes mostly unnoticed.

Carving with simple hand tools...gouge and mallet, hatchet, adze... rather than power tools or a lathe allows a deeper, more soulful connection to creative intuition and the wood as it speaks.

ShadeTree bowls are one-of-a kind, and considered heirloom, gallery-quality work.

Whether used to enhance existing decor or inspire a greater sense of visual harmony, serve a more functional purpose, or be shared as a meaningful gift, a piece of ShadeTree art means having a piece of that place where time slows and soulful creativity comes to life.

Take a moment to relax and enjoy the gallery; be inspired by Sherial's story; or discover how the craftsmanship of centuries ago still lives on.
