one5three Design is expanding and introducing a bold new product line – The Artisan Series.
The Artisan Series of cutting/serving boards is a 100% made-to-order, custom offering consisting of two matched or complimentary themed cutting/serving boards. The set consists of one large board and one small board. However, sets are 100% made-to-order and the pair can be whatever you prefer.
Each design and specific use of materials will be made one time, never to be
repeated. Each set is custom made with an emphasis on individuality. Your design is just that…your design. Once complete, the set is branded on the back with the one5three logo, hand-numbered, hand-signed by me, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which states the Species of Wood used, the Design and the Artisan’s Interpretation.
If each set is made specifically and individually for the owner(s), how do we get there??? When a set is ordered, I will spend some time getting to know you. We’ll have a conversation about your thoughts, your vision, intended use for the boards, and I will start to design your Artisan Series set in my head.
Once I am comfortable that the design is on the right track and our vision is one cohesive idea, I’ll give you details of the pieces or, based on our conversations, if I have ‘Artisan’s Liberty’…I will start the manufacture! Depending on the intricacy of the design and my workload, manufacture of your set will take 2 – 4 weeks.
After your set is complete we will arrange a time for your ‘reveal’. If you are local, this will be in person at delivery. Otherwise, we can have a FaceTime call (alternatively – Skype) where I will reveal your finished product and explain the design to you. Then, I will meticulously package your product and ship it to your door via FedEx.
This set now resides in the Sacramento area. The owner is a horse enthusiast, competing in that arena. The design of the boards centers around the owner’s passion for horses.
Species: Walnut with inlays of Maple, Brazilian Cherry and Alder
Design: Face Grain Walnut with two thin parallel Maple inlays distal to the centerline. A bifurcating vertical stripe consisting of alternating Maple and Brazilian Cherry parallelograms arranged ‘back-to-back’ bordered on either side by thin Alder stripes with Alder insets top and bottom. The larger board has exposed saw kerf on the edge grain that has been fire-stressed.
Interpretation: The design illustrates the perspective of the rider sitting astride the horse while both shares a parallel, steadfast focus on the task ahead which is reflected by the parallel Maple inlays. The alternating Maple & Brazilian Cherry center stripe is reminiscent of the horse’s braided mane bordered by thin Alder inlays representing the reins. The Alder inset at the top of the Maple & Brazilian Cherry represents the bridle crownpiece and the lower Alder inset represents the pommel of the saddle.
