Adiante franszoon Custom Wood Carving & Furniture

“My goal is to incorporate the Saramacca Maroon style of wood carving into the contemporary style of western furniture making. I want to make unique objects that my clients will consider heirlooms to hand down to their children. When they speak of my work, they can tell about how each object was crafted, because when I am commissioned to create a piece, I collaborate closely with the client in the decision making process. We work together to create the design, then select the wood and consider the form and function of each object. Only the finest woods such as walnut, teak, mahogany, and tropical cedar are used because of their strength and beauty. Each object becomes as unique to the desires of the individual. I also welcome commissions to create “legacy” pieces such as large wall hangings and entry doors that represent my unique interpretations of Saramaccan wood carving in places such as museums, galleries and other public places. ”
