The Story

The elegant, flowing form was designed by Laura Rittenhouse in San Luis Obispo, CA. Available at the launch of in 2013, the original iteration was named the Chork and made from a variety of woods. Determined to bring back the simple yet remarkable design in a new, elegant form, we worked closely with both Laura and a new artist whose work we recently added to our collection, Erica Moody. Forming precision made and beautifully finished functional metal objects at her shop in Maine, Erica was the perfect collaborator to bring the Crescent Brass Pincers to life.
