These Footed Platte cutting boards are probably the simplest, yet most labor intense thing I make. One board, two feet, any shape or size.
The Footed Platte combines sculptural sensibilities with utility. There is a nice tension between a truly organic thing, and a purpose. The care taken in the construction and finish result in an almost sensual feel. The Footed Platte is my biggest seller. Since 2010, I've sold over 2,000 unique, handmade footed plattes and racked up over 20,000 admirers on my Etsy.com store. The Footed Platte is also the perfect addition to any shop selling fine gifts or housewares.
My Etsy.com store has been an amazing way to get the word out about my products. The Footed Platte has appeared on Oprah, in Dwell magazine and Martha Stewart Living. Its also been featured on Apartment Therapy, The Kitchen, and numerous other blogs.
I’ve even started an exclusive line for Calvin Klein.
The Footed Platte is already selling fast at several fine shops throughout the Catskill Mountains, including the historic Byrdcliffe Shop in Woodstock, NY. Contact me to discuss adding my work to your store's shelves as well.
