The photos shown on this site are functional decorative bowls, vessels, ikebana flower holders, and sushi trays as well as interesting sculptures and pieces of art totally created by one artist – Jim Sprinkle. Most of these are one-of-a-kind pieces. They will not be reproduced exactly as seen in any photo, but the style, shape or combination of woods and their colors may be repeated in a similar piece. The sushi trays, chopsticks and flower holders are the exceptions to this statement.
With that in mind, if you see a particular shape, pattern or wood (or color) that you like, please email Jim. (firstname.lastname@example.org) He loves to collaborate with folks and design custom pieces that have special meaning for one individual. His policy is to create the piece, then email a photo with the price to the potential buyer. If they like it and want to purchase it, the transaction is completed and the object is mailed. If the individual is not happy with the finished product, then it is simply added to Madera’s inventory. (Happily, every custom piece has been purchased by the collaborator so far.) This has proven to be a fun and educational process for both Jim and his customers!
