Randy Hintz will have his debut at Salvaterra Pottery’s Studio/Gallery during the November 3 and 4, 2018, Weaverville Art Safari.  Randy describes his woodwork as “Refined Rustic”.  He likes to use wood with live edges or wood that is repurposed.  All handmade furniture and accessories.

Randy’s pieces are a cross between Arts and Crafts and Rustic.  A perfect  marriage for the mountain home and on trend for today’s home decor.  Unlike any other woodworker, Randy’s attention to detail and construction, creates pieces that will last for generations.  Randy also does custom work.  If you are looking for something unique for your home, see these one of a kind pieces during the Weaverville Art Safari, which is located minutes from Asheville.

Sneak Peak of Woodwork Being Debuted

Randy will be showing for the first time a dining room table set out of walnut, end tables and a sofa table with live edge out of cherry, a live edge coffee table out of maple, and coat racks and matching bench from recycled oak.  Perfect for any entry or mud room.

He will also be featuring tables with antique sewing machine bases.  A lovely hutch out of maple would be perfect to go with his dining room table or would also be ideal for an office.

Some of the accessories will include one of a kind lamps with custom matching copper shades.  Lamps will be made with Salvaterra Pottery’s tile embedded into the base, framed by wood.  These large scale lamps will be ideal for the grandest of homes.  Matching framed tiles and live edge mirrors are also in the mix.

Other pieces are in the works.  Each piece is unique and work is limited so come to purchase work early during the safari.

About the Woodworker

Randy Hintz is a Civil Engineer by trade.  He has always had a desire to create with his hands and out of necessity developed his skills in woodwork.  After many years of creating pieces for his family and friends, he has decided to expand his work to the public.

Randy presently creates all of his pieces in his woodworking shop at his home in Weaverville.  He has sold his first pieces through New Morning Gallery in Asheville.  And the best place to see his work in the near future is at Salvaterra Pottery, located at 30 Cole Rd, Weaverville.

Future Plans

As our 4 Acre property continues to develop into an Art Community,

Randy will move his woodworking shop next to Salvaterra Pottery.  This will enable him and his wife to more easily collaborate on pieces and make it more readily available.

The couple is also planning two other studio buildings available for lease to artists working in other mediums.  This is part of a larger plan to create the property as a destination place for visitors to see artists at work all in one location.  The couple believes it is an ideal location because it is immediately off of I-26.  Crucible Glass is also located across the street from this location making the location even more desirable.
