What is Functional Art - Morgan's Elk Creek Enterprizes

Functional Art?

What in the world is "functional" art?  Throughout the ages,  things originally designed and made for everyday use have sometimes  transformed into objects of art.  Consider well-made furniture, hand  tools,   and other antiques.  Even modern electronic designs and layouts have  been transformed into works of art.  I prefer to create things that can  serve a useful purpose rather than something to just be   looked at and appreciated.  A well-made pen, for example, is a joy to  write with but can also be an object of beauty.

I specialize in small, mostly lathe-turned items such as pens,  pencils, letter openers, bottle stoppers, and even toys.  On these pages  you will find examples of many of the items I've made. Consider them as  starting points for your imagination.  I use high-quality hardware kits  and have a variety of woods and materials in stock, but others are  available - the choices are virtually unlimited.  As I add more to the  site, I will start to indicate the items that are in stock and available  for quick shipment.  However, since most of these pieces are custom,  please keep in mind that time must be allotted to order materials and  hand-craft the finished product.  I am always happy to discuss your  desires/needs to create your personal functional art piece.

I order only from reputable suppliers to ensure sustainablity of the wood, especially the exotic species.
