|William Morris and Arts and Crafts Style fabric and wallpaper, furniture, lighting and accessories|
I have long had an interest in architecture, but my introduction to the Arts & Crafts style came about somewhat obliquely. In 1980, while living in Vancouver, I shared in the purchase of a Craftsman style bungalow built in 1926. Some years later I began a carpentry apprenticeship and started working in the trade. At the same time I also began to look with much more interest at my own home. The building needed care, and I began to provide it as best I could. Along the way I learned much about that old house, and the era in which it had been built.

|Aivars Logins Sooke Wood Artist and Wood Turner|
A passion for wood and closeness to nature gives Aivars the unique ability to see beyond the surface and find the inner beauty locked within the grain, textures and irregularities of the wood. Because of this, each piece is a work of art and no two pieces are alike. His work is known and collected around the world.
All of the wood Aivars works with is native to the Sooke area and part of the local history.
Much of this wood is considered logging waste and is destined to be burned. In his ocean side studio, he creates beautiful bowls, boxes, planters, mirrors, kitchen ware, burled furniture and carvings of the highest quality that compliment any interior setting.
All pieces are finished with non-toxic bees wax or 100% pure unrefined tung oil, to retain the natural patina and beauty of the wood.
Stop in and visit the studio located on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island. Browse the many finished pieces on display or watch the artist himself at work.(keep an eye open for the sign)
