Bethany Formica: Being a performing artist where nothing exists after the show, I love making something tangible in the world. I started wood turning and building benches in 2004.
I’ve been expanding my skills in the wood shop and making new treasures as Sawdust Siren with my husband, Conrad Bender.
Sawdust Siren, Re-imagining the Discarded
We’re nostalgic and sentimental. We love finding new ways to use antique and abandoned elements. We admire the simplicity of old technology and the discipline and longevity of historic craftsmanship, and have a passion for incorporating both into our work. Our unique handcrafted treasures for your home are made from repurposed lumber, found objects, antique horns, and anything else that inspires our curiosity.
