Savannah (Georgia) & folk Artist Ridley Stallings has a talent for reclaiming materials from old Southern homes and transforming them into handcrafted works of art. Ridley’s reclaimed wood art is created from old homes that have been abandoned. The elements of these houses include gorgeous carved crown moulding and solid wooden planks that were once used for siding. Ridley collects these, as well as: bead board, groove floors and barn wood to use as the base of her pieces.
I am continuously amazed to see the process every time from my head, to a sketch, through tons of sawdust and sweat and finally into a finished form! It’s like Christmas over and over again!
