Member of the Month: Josh Mabry

August 18, 2014

Josh Mabry came to ADX in January 2014 with little to no experience making. Although he had always been creative, Josh had never taken time to find the right outlet. He started looking for a welding class in town and “stumbled upon this great little community.” Josh proceeded to take Intro to Woodworking, Intro to Metal, and Upholstery 101 in order to figure out what craft best suited him. Josh ended up being drawn to woodworking and has spent the last seven months in the wood shop bringing the ideas he scribbles in his notebook to life.

I started playing with making these gem-like forms from scraps of wood here in the shop back in April and fell in love with the form.

Josh has been working on turning his designs into functional pieces of art and will soon be launching a line of wooden jars and lamps. These gorgeous wood products will be available through his website madebymabry.com and on his Etsy shop, madebymabry.

Josh strives to use reclaimed and sustainably sourced materials whenever possible for his projects and even makes his own locally sourced beeswax finish for his “gems”. Josh also donates 10% of his sales to help animals in need through the Pixie Project
