Bridge & Burn Interview

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

I feel at this point like I’ve been in Portland for a good while, but sometime I take a little breath and realize it’s only been three short years since I landed here and started my business.  One of the first people I met while getting Caravan off the ground was Eric from Bridge & Burn.  I had heard about his company before moving here and really admired his bootstrapping abilities and the homespun elegance of his brand.  It was a pleasure to sit down with him and Cara, his photographer, a few weeks ago and talk about what my path has been thus far for their new series on Portland Makers:  BridgeBurners.  It’s been a great ride so far and I’m looking forward to seeing where 2014 takes us…     – Shannon

Thanks so much to Shelterrific for featuring us and our new Sullivan Table Lamp on their blog today.  As I was chatting with writer Nicole Curcio at my studio, I showed her the original prototype for the Sullivan (photo, left): a block of wood I had turned on the lathe.  The lathe is a fantastic wood-working tool and I really enjoy using it to create new shapes.  Much of the time, my designs are improvised on the spot with my gouges and some inspiration.  It’s a way of working that gives me some freedom as a designer, plus- I love turning!  There’s something really satisfying about carving away at a block of wood to arrive a beautiful shape.

Please check out Shelterrific for more posts on home decorating and cooking, they have a great recipe here.

It was an absolute thrill to be interviewed for Luxe Magazine’s Pacific Northwest issue this season.  It’s one of my favorite magazines, with limitless resources on new trends and designers.  They also highlighted some of my favorite makers and shops:  ABJ Glassworks, Beam & Anchor and Ruth Asawa.  Thanks Luxe!
