Melty Stuff was born from an educational background in visual art, a short-term job in woodworking, and a personal interest & practice in design. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Melty Stuff focuses on locally sourced, urban lumber, paired with a one of a kind stone, which consists of gypsum powder, pigment, wood, sawdust, rocks, and whatever was swept up on my shop floor (who the hell knows what's encapsulated in your piece!). 

With thoughtfully crafted templates and molds, the end result of these materials looks soft, with unnatural movements and clean lines, but the material is heavy, extremely durable, and in nature, the opposite of soft. The end result is taking something natural, tediously remove the organic feel, then spit shine the earthly nature back into it. Was the shape already in there this whole time?
