What Harris Wood Creative Studio means to us..
Being able to create special pieces is something that means a lot. We find it is the basis for our business as it literally feeds our soul and our desire to make our creations meaningful.
We realise that sounds all airy fairy and corny but it's actually true for us. Creating without meaning is literally meaningless and stifles the ability for us to be creative.
To be able to create something that means so much to someone that it brings them to tears is why we put so much into what we do.
Sure we can do some things that are less meaningful but we certainly hope they have at least a personal connection to the ones receiving them.
~ We've made ENGRAVED BOARDS that have brought the bride to tears because it was an engraving of a very SPECIAL RECIPE her Grandma was famous for making through her childhood and she had so many beautiful memories making the recipe as a child.
~ We've created UNIQUE FAMILY TREE DESIGNS that have been presented to a family elder at a monumental birthday or anniversary celebration which clearly shows all the family members that came after their marriage. Something they truly cherish and are proud to show everyone who visits. It becomes a real conversation piece.
~ Being able to create a special KEEPSAKE BOX for a 21st that had the perfect design from a movie she has always adored.
~ We've created beautiful MEMORIAL PLAQUES for lost furbabies so they can be memorialised in a special location at their home.
~ We've created RESIN PIECES with SENTIMENTAL ITEMS embedded which spark special memories every time they are glanced at.
We have so many stories of creating something truly special.
Would you like something special created for your lost loved one? Whether it be pets or people, we are happy to work with you to create something that perfectly reflects who you miss.
It can be a memorial plaque engraved in Slate, or it can be a something engraved with their name and/or details which can feature a candle. If you have cremation ashes we can incorporate them with resin and make an egg that holds their ashes within.
So many possibilities that often come to fruition after discussions between ourselves and you.
Dandelions are special to many for many different reasons.
As dandelions turn to seed, children everywhere rush to pick them, so that they can close their eyes, make a wish, and blow the seeds into the air. ...
In addition to granting wishes, many people believe that dandelion seeds will carry your thoughts and dreams to loved ones when you blow them into the air.
Like many, dandelions are special to us and we have created many resin pieces with a fully bloomed dandelion seed pod which people marvel at when they see them.
Common Questions are - Is that real?
How did you get it to stay complete?
How did you make that? and so on...
We have spent a lot of time and money on resin in learning to perfect this and love to create them.
One of our many creation loves is laser engraved serving/decorative boards. Featuring premade boards purchased from a variety of suppliers and also workshop made boards. Our favourite to engrave on is Acacia wood because of the beauty in it's many grains and colour tones.
We don't just engrave lightly, we ensure a quality deep engraving is made and is presented with Care Instructions.
We have well over 200 designs which can be chosen as is or modified to make it personalised and perfect for your occassion.
Making it special is what we just love to do so you can come to us not sure with what you want, but we will ask you questions about the recipients and the occassion. What they love and love to do. Maybe who is in their family to ensure family members are included. The more info we get the more we can personalise to make it the gift with the most appeal.
