Climent first discovered the powerful beauty of rare tropical hardwoods exploring the jungles of Central and South America in 2009. Since then, she has dedicated her life to sustainably sourcing these woods and bringing them back to New York.
This episode features artist Alexandra Climent working in her shop in Narrowsburg, NY.
Climent’s woodworking craft was born out of her desire to simply highlight the natural aesthetics of these unknown and breathtaking species. Each piece she makes is a representation of the sublime beauty of this planet; and the responsibility she feels to showcase these materials justly. Alexandra is proud of her efforts in sharing the stunning power of these materials as well as active work in aiding the reforestation of the jungles she sources from.
