3 heirloom objects crafted with quality materials and designed to have the emotional durability to last and to be passed down generations. 
One ladder I kept for myself, one I gave to  a friend, and the third is given to Contemporary Craft to be auctioned off for someone else to enjoy. 
​​​​​​​Materials: walnut, plywood, rice paper,  twill, oil, wood glue
Tools: router, table saw
The Materials
The materials worked together to elevate each other. The plywood, known for how cheap it is, looks like a stone inlay in this context. The dark walnut contrasted against the rice paper helps draw attention to the fans as they tumble down.
