Picks: I enjoy turning practical objects into art objects. When it comes to the wooden toothpick I’m, apparently, not the first to do so. Sources indicate that in the 17th century toothpicks were considered to be luxury objects artfully crafted using precious metals and expensive stones. No metal or stones on these colorful wooden picks but they are embellished with a touch of whimsy all the while showcasing my signature style of simplicity and minimalism.
