Distinctive birch, poplar, and driftwood forms take on vibrant hues and whimsical designs to forge Sticks' unique and eclectic collection of furniture, gifts, and object art. Beginning with untouched tinder, a staff of inspired artisans carves, paints, etches, and embellishes each piece over a period of eight days within the company's award-winning Des Moines studio, forging a one-of-a-kind creation. Lazy Susans, which come in a variety of designs, do double duty as vibrant table centerpieces and merry-go-rounds for bored condiments ($414–$506). Shelves and mantles take on a soaring quality with the addition of a driftwood angel, whose fluttering wire hair and outstretched wooden arms give the illusion of celestial flight ($517). Otherwise, candlesticks buttress waxen tapers with off-kilter shapes and zany patterns ($101.20–$138), or candlestick lamps brighten rooms with modern technology and cheerful whimsy ($414)—much like Dr. Seuss's designer collection of decorative iPads.

Sticks sprung from humble origins when, in 1992, Sarah Grant began carving ornaments and candlesticks from birch, poplar, and driftwood in a small studio in Des Moines. As her work began to attract national interest and demand for it grew, Sarah enlisted the aid of other local artists and expanded her inventory to include handcrafted heirloom-quality furniture, whimsical sculptures, and intricate keepsakes.
Today, the artists’ work is showcased in more than 100 galleries across the country. Their installation projects have even decorated the walls of Blank Children’s Hospital, the Animal Rescue League of Central Iowa, and the student center at Iowa State University.
Sticks artists can often be spotted by the shores of local rivers, gathering driftwood for their work. They assemble the wood into custom-designed tables, beds, and armoires within their spacious, light-filled studio before painting them with colorful, whimsical designs, from smiling suns and moons to lush landscapes. The versatile artists even take their tools and paintbrushes to homes, businesses, and underground mad-scientist labs to craft custom art installations and interiors.
