Leslie Webb discovered her love of building while working as a nanny. She began working in the father's painting studio a few hours a week, building shipping crates. She was hooked the very first time she cut a piece of wood. Her passion led her to the renowned Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine, where she completed the inaugural 9 month Comprehensive Program. She then continued her design education in the Crafts and Design program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Leslie has participated in many prestigious shows, including ICFF, the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. Leslie loves the challenge of balancing the aesthetic and utilitarian aspects of each piece she designs. She believes that form and function are equally important, that they must act together to create a whole. her designs often employ the use of pattern and repetition, building works whose totals are greater than the sum of their parts.
Bloom Where You're Slanted
Get swept up in the natural beauty of your next bouquet with this sculptural vase. Inspired by the shape of antique fans, it is crafted from a series of cherry wood blocks arranged at sequential angles. Fitted into each block is a glass test tube large enough to hold a single flower, creating a dynamic sweep of color. The test tubes are watertight, so your blooms stay fresh longer, and are removable for easy cleaning. Handmade in Georgetown, Texas.
