Made in Connecticut: Accordance with Nature (AWN), beautifully designed, multi-functional storage implements, evocative of Shaker brooms and boxes, by Patrick Turiello, a self-daught woodworker and metalworker with a background in sculpture and sound design and a degree in architecture. We originally spotted AWN when Turiello exhibited at Field & Supply a couple of years ago; now, we’re taking a closer look at a few favorite pieces.
N.B.: Turiello also offers custom work, as well as a “set” of many pieces “in the same specials of wood/metal;” inquire for more.

Above L: A Hanging Vessel has bristles charmingly affixed to the bottom. Above R: Turiello’s Brass Basket No. 1. “We’ve all seen machine-made wire constructions (shopping carts come to mind) which in my opinion have a very cold and lifeless personality,” Turiello writes in the AWN Journal. In contrast, the woven part of his basket “is all bent by hand and by eye without the use of any sort of jig.”
