Three Acadia pens headed to Colorado.
The three gold Acadia pens pictured above are part of a group that I turned over the weekend. The top one is Maroon Fleck, the middle one is Caribbean Swirl and the bottom one is Light and Dark Green Swirls. All are made from acrylic. The three of them along with nine more Acadia pens made in various acrylic colors are headed to a new store for us called the Colorado Collection in Centennial, Colorado.
I have spent my whole life immersed in the woods of Maine. I grew up hunting, fishing, ice fishing, snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and spending as much time as possible outside. It only seems natural for me to be working with wood. I am a self taught woodturner. I have spent numerous hours refining my turning skills and when not turning I have spent a lot of time working on shapes. The shapes that I turn come to me from everywhere. It could be the shape of a distant mountain, the curve in the road, architecture and images from old pictures. All of my products are turned by eye and like in nature there are no two pieces ever alike.
