Local Portland gal, Katie Armour, is the artist and craftswoman behind the beautiful carved hair pins and combs that are featured here at Field Trip. Below is an image of Katie in her NE Portland studio, where she hand crafts every piece from start to finish. With beauty and functionality in mind, Armour makes objects that are designed to be used everyday, forever.
Katie is a third-generation woodworker, learning her techniques and craft from summers spent in her Grandpa's wood shop. The tools and techniques she uses today have a long history and she uses them with the intention of bringing sustainable, tactile and lovingly made pieces to you. Katie uses native American hardwoods and natural oils for each piece.
