Workerman Wooden Ampersand

by Kate Pruitt

I remember walking through the Alameda flea market one day and coming across a pile of wooden letters. Since they were all made from straight pieces, the letters had no curves, which resulted in a strange “font” that actually had some really beautiful letter shapes. I was reminded of them when I saw these wooden sculptures from Minneapolis-based designer Adam Brackney, a.k.a. Workerman. I love seeing the classically curvaceous ampersand symbol rendered in sharp, crisp angles. The piece looks lovely sitting on a mantel or tabletop, but you could also hang it on a wall, as seen below. It’s available in natural, dark walnut or golden mahogany stain and is on sale for $15 until October 14th — a great price for such an unusual piece. — Kate
