Jason builds traditional and innovative solid wood furniture, cabinets, and doors in his studio in West Brattleboro, Vermont. Lumber comes from the neighboring forests and is milled beside his studio on a bandsaw mill. His work features handcrafted joinery and hand-worked surfaces that are sensual and unique, satisfying to the touch and to the eye. His creations will bring the pace and rhythm of human-powered work into your home.
The Breens have built a small homestead on a hillside in rural Vermont. Together, Jason and his wife Erica run the family custom furniture business and a small horse-powered maple sugaring operation, tend extensive gardens, raise chickens and milk goats, and homeschool their two children.
“Working together with our family and our animals brings us into harmony with the Earth and the seasons.” This harmony is implicitly echoed in their furniture designs and the sense of balance and integrity in the finished pieces. They offer accountable craftsmanship that is rooted in the land where the trees grow.
Jason has been working wood in Vermont since 1989. He studied guitar and lute building at Marlboro College with Gib Taylor, graduating with high honors in 1992. He then worked for six years as a timber framer and house carpenter with MacArthur Builders in Marlboro, Vermont. He has been building fine, freestanding furniture in his studio since 1998.
Erica has lived in Brattleboro her entire life, excepting her four years at Haverford College outside Philadelphia, PA. She has been a part of the furniture business since its beginnings as a consultant, and currently heads up the marketing and management departments.
