Sunhouse Craft specializes in home goods, crafted in a manner close to the
land, and inspired by the timeless shapes of Appalachian crafts.
Designed and made in the rolling hills near Berea, Kentucky, wooden wares
are hand hewn with an axe and knife for all spoons and talismans, brooms are
hand woven, with a non-electric process, and time and attention is paid to the
details of each piece. Wood is sustainably sourced and harvested from
nearby, and locally farmed, and natural fibers inform the design process.
After four years living on communes, two without electricity, sunhouse craft
is the work of designer/maker Cynthia Main that allows her to combine her
background as a fabricator with her strong desire to find sustainable and
harmonious ways of working. Each piece is made by hand in her Kentucky
studio, weaving together crafting traditions of Appalachia, natural materials,
and timeless design. The end result are tools that bring back a sense of everyday magic into our daily work and chores.
