Welcome to Leaf and Light (my site in progress). My name is Keith Aderholdt and this is my San Francisco based, small business. What I make and sell changes often – let’s call it art (whatever that is) -in my case it’s usually sculpture. I’m reluctant to narrow it down further. If you’ve bought a piece in 2012 (Thank you!) it’s most likely made of locally salvaged, live edge wood (with or without a plant) or other natural material – botanical art. Each of these pieces is as unique as you or I. What may be less obvious is the scalability of these simple structures. A very large piece of work can be made from a single, large piece of a very large tree (I often use redwood) or composed of lots of small pieces of various material. I’ve only been working in small scale for 3 years. Most of my sculpture and building experience has been with mixed media and much larger work. I still love to work big too.
The years behind and ahead. 2012 has been my first year to really push for an expansion of Leaf and Light and thanks to you it’s working. In order to grow at a pace that is manageable, most of the last year has been spent, making new connections, refining my simple wooden sculptures and plant combination pieces (I call them “anchors”) and building a brand new business. So far so good. I have diverse and ambitious plans for Leaf and Light and it’s only beginning.
Thanks so much for the support.
