Hudson Valley Artisans: Wickham Solid Wood Studio

We at SA Baxter admire fellow bespoke Hudson Valley, NY-based Artisans.  The region North of New York City is seeing a renaissance in small manufacturing businesses.   This new feature will spotlight these thriving small businesses which develop furniture, lighting, home accessories, and jewelry.  Our first featured Artisan is Jessica Wickham of Wickham Solid Wood Studio.

Jessica fabricates gorgeous one-of-a-kind hardwood furniture for both private and commercial clients.  Wickham is located in Beacon, NY.  Beacon is 60 miles North of New York City and home to the Dia:Beacon contemporary art museum, as well as a thriving Artist Community.  A number of Jessica’s pieces feature steel and brass inlay.  A focal point of the Wickham’s process is the sustainable practice of sourcing local hardwood species – sourcing “dead and down” logs from Hudson Valley landscapers since 2004 .
