Here are a few examples of the framed tiles we create.  These products are a collaboration between Salvaterra Pottery and Refined Rustic Woodworks.  Ceramic tiles are handmade by Salvaterra Pottery in their studio/gallery, located at 30 Cole Road in Weaverville, NC.  Throughout the work you see on our website, you will see many similar collaborations which combined media from these two companies.  Strange????  Nope.  You see Sue Hintz, the owner of Salvaterra Pottery, is Randy's wife.

Tiles are framed with a variety of wood species including cherry, sapele, oak, and walnut in individual tiles, and sets of 3, utilizing live edge and fully milled materials which are perfect for wall hangings.

Stand alone tiles may be purchased through Salvaterra Pottery for use in your own creations.

This combination of framed tiles also takes the form of lamps.  Photos above show the combination of media in this manner.  The lamps are complimented with locally handmade custom copper shades which mimic the tile designs, making each of these lamps a truly unique statement piece.

This collaboration of framed tiles also extends to mirrors.  Photos below include framed tiles used in this manner.

 

Coasters

Refined Rustic Woodworks
Cedar Coasters (Sold in Set of 4) $25

Refined Rustic Woodworks has begun manufacturing coasters.  Each coaster is cedar and contains a beautiful mountain scene which is branded into the cedar on the top.  The bottom of the coaster contains our branded logo.  Coasters are currently being sold at Kress Emporium, Salvaterra Pottery, and the Pisgah Inn.

The cedar coasters have been a popular seller, so we have begun to produce larger quantities of this product.  We have also begun to produce a small quantity of octagonal coasters.

New Gallery – Pisgah Inn

Refined Rustic Woodworks has recently added another gallery.  As of April 1, 2019, Refined Rustic Woodworks is being sold at the Pisgah Inn along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  This makes the fourth gallery currently carrying our work.  Other galleries our work can be found include Kress Emporium (http://thekressemporium.com), New Morning Gallery (http://newmorninggallerync.com), and Salvaterra Pottery (http://www.salvaterrapottery.com).  The photos below are a sampling of the work currently at the Pisgah Inn.

Rustic Beer Flights

Beer flights have become a very popular item.  Given that Asheville has recently been named "Beer City USA" and there are dozens of breweries in and around the Asheville area, beer flights seem like an obvious extension of the culture.

Refined Rustic Woodwork's twist on beer flights includes live edge, wormy, and high-character, beefy pieces.  Variations include some with handles, some without, to suit your needs.  Each beer flight includes four (4) five ounce glasses.

Currently, our beer flights are available locally in Kress Emporium (http://www.thekressemporium.com/) in downtown Asheville and the Pisgah Inn ( http://www.pisgahinn.com) along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Of course, they are always available for purchase directly from Refined Rustic Woodworks.

Candle Holders

We create various candle holders.  Some are made with more than one type of wood pieced together.  Others are made with only one species.  We create some more rustic and natural and others very polished and finished.

Wood species utilized include dogwood, walnut, pine , cherry and cedar.  Each piece/set is custom made based on the character of the individual wood selected for the product.  So, like all handmade art, no two pieces/sets will ever be exactly the same.
