The annual Architectural Digest Home Show is a feast for the eyes, showcasing the work of artists and artisans from around the globe.  In a sea of white booths, CAROLYN CARTWRIGHT’s booth stands out with reSAWN’s MOYASU shou sugi ban charred wood siding.  These handmade cypress planks are burnt and finished in the USA.

Carolyn Cartwright makes hand blown glass lamps in “the tradition of the Venetian masters, but liberated by our american perspective.”  The affinity of these materials is readily apparent in both their hand made nature and use of fire to produce a functional work of art.

reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak, and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal.  Historically very specific in their definition, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general.  All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in our facility in Telford, PA.
