Welcome to Yosemite Goat's Art and Wooden Creations Blogspot!! My rustic Yosemite Art style is a source of adventure in the surrounding forests. Within each piece I search for the beauty within the wood. Then create a beautiful functional pieces of artwork for your home. Enjoy the portfolio!
I began the project of Yosemitegoat's Artwork and Woodcraft while attending Humboldt State University. I found a bunch of amazing driftwood on the beach one day and thought to myself, I should make a couple of lamps. I went to the local thrift store,purchased a number of lamps for their parts, and began piecing together the new lamps. As for the shades, I would take old lamp shades, strip the original materials and overlay handmade paper purchased at a local shop. Sure enough I was able to make half a dozen lamps which many friends wanted. I made a few trades here and there with folks and was pretty excited. I began making more and more items based upon the style and shape of the wood.
Now I make a number of various pieces that have been a blast to create.
This was my first lamp!!

I have made a number of new items that I brought into Mountain Sage. Many of them disappeared very quickly. Brings a smile to my face!!
