Wooden Rings

SWR artist-owner Gustav Reyes, has worked hard to develop a construction process that is both cutting-edge and accessible. It comes directly from the combination of education (at the Art Institute of Chicago), experience (a lifetime of woodworking), and his own environmental awareness. We use a single piece of wood to create the band of the ring, so that the structure follows an uninterrupted, single-direction grain. Then it’s reinforced with an industrial strength adhesive which is nontoxic, totally inert, and has no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Our wood rings can only be made one at a time, by an artisan’s hand. We don’t use metal to reinforce the wood. The wood in each ring is manipulated only to the extent that it is capable of being manipulated; its integrity is never compromised. The process works with nature’s engineering, and not against it.
