  • Peter Bauer / Candace Kreitlow

    Pete and Candace met in 1991 and almost immediately discovered their shared interest in wood art. Candace enjoyed annual summer treks to the southern Oregon coast to visit friends and hunt for driftwood. Their subject matter is often abstract birds, fish as well as more realistic representations of seals and dolphins. Candace is instrumental to the design of each piece and enjoys the detail work of the eyes and head. Pete enjoys the rough out process and much of the sanding and finishing. In addition, he creates carved cutting and serving boards and burl bowls.
