Made in America, with domestically sourced components, Artifex Craftworks creates beautiful, durable home goods and decorations. From charcuterie boards to cutting boards and trivets to coasters to cantilever wine racks, make entertaining exciting and wow your guests every time.
We are excited to welcome Artifex Craftworks to the Oak Brook Artisan Market at Oakbrook Center on Sat & Sun, Aug 10-11, 2019. This 2-day outdoor market showcases the Midwest’s finest artisans in fashion, food, home goods + art.
Each piece is crafted by hand, comes with care instructions, and has a lifetime guarantee. With six standard wood varieties and more than forty colors, there are hundreds of variations available to find something that matches your style.
• Home Decor – candle holder, trivets, shot glasses
• Coasters – Beautiful, bespoke, artisan-made coasters made from wood and epoxy resin and backed with cork.
• Charcuterie Boards – Handmade from live-edge slabs (the natural edge of the wood) and FDA-approved epoxy resin.
The artisans at Artifex Craftworks hand-work live-edge slabs into molds and forms made in-house. They then pour FDA-compliant, food grade epoxy-resin, with added colorants, into the voids. When the resin has cured into a solid state, it is released from the mold and worked into its final shape. Planing, carving, sanding, and treating with their own custom wood butter finish each piece into a durable, beautiful, and made by hand product. Each piece also comes with care and maintenance instructions as well as a lifetime guarantee.
Keeping it local:
All the products are in a workshop in Indianapolis, IN. The epoxy resin is sourced from an American company, and almost all the wood used (90%) is sourced domestically from local farms and sawmills that support sustainable farming practices. The artisans at Artifex Craftworks personally examine every slab before it comes into the workshop, and each piece is cut to size, paired with colors and shapes, then poured, refined and prepared.
Perfect for your home, your gift-giving needs, your clients and more, Artifex Craftworks has the perfect gift for the person who has everything.
