Master woodworker and designer Edward Wohl graduated from Washington University in 1967 with a BS degree in Architecture. He has been designing and building graceful wood furniture since 1970.
We have been carrying Ed Wohl's work at Nantucket Looms for over 25 years and share his commitment to fine craftsmanship. Not until you handle Ed’s breadboards do you realize just how soft wood can feel.
Rebecca Jusko Peraner discovered her passion for weaving at Rhode Island School of Design where she majored in Textile Design.
She apprenticed under Master Weaver, Andrew Oates at Nantucket Looms, where she settled and continued to hone her craft. In the evenings and on weekends, Becky can be found in her home studio creating handwoven tapestries incorporating special treasures.Becky combines her love of the ocean and all things eclectic with her skill of weaving to create unique tapestries. People love Becky’s tapestries because they reflect a special person or place, such as a collection of fishing lures crafted with dad in mind or a scallop shell tapestry reminiscent of Nantucket.
Handwoven on a small loom using genuine shells collected from Nantucket's beaches, these pieces are truly special and unique to the island. Becky’s tapestries reflect her love of collecting all things eclectic that are then woven into works of art to be collected by those who fall in love with her work.
Emily Johnson's pottery, with pastel and earth tones, is largely inspired by the nature that surrounds her. A lover of the outdoors, Emily takes her interactions with the beauty of the Vermont hills and shapes them into the whimsical designs found in her handcrafted ceramic pieces.
We knew Emily’s pottery was going to be a hit when she brought a small sampling to the shop and our staff wanted to buy it all.
The popularity of Emily's work is a testament to the quality of her craftsmanship - though it does make her pottery very hard to keep in stock!
