Dorothy Spencer

Dorothy Spencer is an author, design historian and creator of home furnishings whose products are made from recycled materials. An avid flea marketer and junker, she juggles her love for building and design with the challenge of writing.

She says of her work, "I have, even as a child, always been fascinated by old pieces of wood, advertising ephemera, old type and the like. As a student of design history and studio design, my interest turned toward the idea of what could be made from already existing materials, just reintroducing them so as to be seen in a different context. I find that the challenge to take something as common and everyday as a broomstick or a license plate or a set of discarded roller skate wheels or hockey sticks and transform them, combining shapes and uses, colors and designs, to create something new and extraordinary from something old and ordinary -- is very exciting."

Ms. Spencer lives in New Jersey where she maintains her design studio.

Comments about HOCKEY STICK BOX:

I returned this item since it was not what it seemed. The bottom was pictured with hockey pucks as the base. It arrived with roller blade wheels. The box is a great idea but once opened inside there was not storage space and well not well build. There was no attention to detail.

    Comments about HOCKEY STICK BOX:

    I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband who is a HUGE hockey fan. It was our 5th wedding anniversary and the gift to give is wood. What better gift? I stuffed it with his favorite player's jersey and a pair of tickets.
    He loved it!
