AWN is short for Accordance With Nature, a collection of work by Patrick Turiello.
The intent is to maintain a close relationship between the design and manufacture of each piece; in other words, to have an ongoing conversation between the concepts and the actual tools used in the manufacturing process.
All AWN pieces are designed & manufactured in Connecticut (soon to be in the Hudson Valley) by Patrick, utilizing tools and machinery acquired from various factories, toolmakers and artisans that are no longer in business and/or require such tooling.
This AWN namesake is perhaps most importantly intended to impart the designer himself with respect for the inevitable.
Formal background in sculpture & sound design, with a degree in Architecture. Self-taught woodworking, metalworking and computer modeling.
Spent youth building treehouses and large BMX/Skate Ramps.

Additionally, if you are interested in ordering a "set" (different pieces in the same species of wood/metal) please inquire prior to making a purchase.
By the very nature of this endeavor, there can only be a limited quantity of total pieces ever created.
