Tuell and Reynolds
In 2003 Tuell + Reynolds introduced their own hand-crafted collection of lighting, furniture, fire screens and sculptural objects that feature elemental materials, exquisite textures and hand oxidized finishes. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, the line has evolved to include many one of a kind sculptural objects of bronze and iron which highlight gifts of nature such as petrified wood, fossils and agate. Supported by a small but dedicated and energetic team of employees working out of an old feed store in northern california, we give each piece individual attention and, because the work is made by hand and to order, each piece can be customized for a perfect fit. Our company embraces both time honored and disappearing hand techniques and modern technology: A pitch pot and chasing tools occupy space next to the 3 d printer, hand drawn designs tinted with watercolor and computer modeled renderings are used in harmony, a digital scanner is used to enlarge a hand sculpted wax maquette. Due to the exclusive and private nature of our custom work we can only show a tiny fraction of the projects on the web: The genesis of the company was the creation of commissioned projects for extraordinary private residences and this is still a major focus of the studio today. Tuell + Reynolds is an informed and sophisticated design studio, combined with a full-scale fabrication and finishing facility. The majority of the work can be viewed by appointment in portfolio format.
