Climb Every Mountain

Behind every great climb is a unique story of weather, gear, and the mountain. Behind this climber silhouette is a one-of-a-kind array of multicolored climbing ropes. Reclaimed from climbing gyms (and kept out of landfills), the retired ropes form colorful contours that peek through the birch wood silhouette in a dynamic dialogue of shapes and surfaces. It makes a great gift and conversation starter for any climbing enthusiast looking to elevate their decor. All materials locally sourced and handmade by Marco Facciola and Stephen Washer in Montreal, Canada named for le mont Royal.

“For us, the best part of being an artist is having the ability to create all the time. We both love making things and will never stop.”

Marco Facciola and Stephen Washer believe that every piece of recycled material has a fascinating story that they incorporate into their art. These cousins from Montreal share a great passion for woodworking and recycling. Growing up together, they constantly came up with new projects and spent countless hours creating and getting their hands dirty. The inspiration for their silhouette compositions came when they made a wooden silhouette representing a large home renovation project that incorporated all the old materials from the house. From there, Marco and Stephen began creating a variety of wooden silhouette art from recycled materials. They use the colors, textures, and depth of recycled wood, ropes, hockey sticks, and other reclaimed material to bring their silhouettes to life.
