Authenticity, The Italian Artisan, and Wood

BY KELLEN CATANI
@ VOL 18 ON FEB 11, 2016

Wood speaks for itself. The tree grows for years, learning about the Earth, becoming its own, developing character. Never perfect, but a unique form a life that always seems to mesmerize. Kellen Catani and his company Purebred Wood and Craft Co. cherishes this imperfection. When it is time for the tree to move on, they repurpose its life into functional and beautiful objects, fully embracing the culture of the Italian artisan as they labor. Purebred exposes the persona that resides in the tree and therefrom create their own expression of authenticity, always exemplifying a deep respect for this material that no man can truly comprehend.
