The first of it’s kind 🏔
So much experimentation & excitement went into this piece, I can hardly contain myself - say hello to Solstice’s first wooden round!
It’s not just the round shape that makes this piece different though - any guess as to what it is? What if I told you the sky was created using a GROCERY BAG. That’s right - you heard me correctly! 🤭
I’ve been keeping this secret out of fear - afraid people may react negatively, or not see past the fact that I’m using a plastic bag in my artwork, that it somehow devalues the product.
But when I look at this, I see beauty. I see the ability to turn something as disposable as a plastic grocery bag into a new and exciting medium. It shows me that opportunities lie around everyone of us - heck, they may even be littering your street corner! 🤷🏼♀️
We can pass over something 1000x before realizing it’s worth. It’s when we choose to look at it differently, that it changes shape.
Stay tuned for the release of my upcoming round collection later this month! ✨

Hi friends! It’s been a while so I thought I’d re-introduce myself - my name is Nicole & I’m a 26 year old woodworker/artist/maker from Wilmington, NC. 🌊
I grew up in southern Maryland (think blue crabs & corn fields), and moved to North Carolina 8 odd years ago to study Environmental Science.
I first picked up a circular saw in 2017 and have since spent countless hours expirmenting, learning, and teaching myself how to use these tools to create pieces that I’m now proud to share.
Nature is definitely my muse! I strive to create as small of an ecological impact as possible by using reclaimed & discarded materials that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
You all have not only pushed me to grow as an artist, but also as a human being. Thanks for being here- I appreciate you more than you know 🙏🏼

After a couple iterations of writing and re-writing a caption for this photo (sent to us from our friend and awesome local musician Josh Lewis @josh_ew_uh ), we realized the futility and decided that it just needs to be posted. Simply dubbed: Humans’ best friend, by the water, next to a FMBC Norwegian Farmhouse ale...it speaks to a modern Norman Rockwell - folksy Americana, with a Scandinavian twist. However, this photo also gives us a chance to shamelessly plug Josh as he plays live at Flying Machine this Saturday the 18th! Dude is a talent and you don’t want to miss seeing him strum the guitar! We hope all of you are enjoying the weather as much as Josh and his canine companion ✌️ #wilmingtonnc#northcarolina#ilm#ilmbeer#ncbeer#flyingmachinebrewing#norwegianfarmhouseale#kveik#dogs

It's a bold move on times part to make the night go by so fast when you're elbow deep in mud. .
Can I get more hours in the day please?
BootCamp!!!! Every day is a day filled with inspiration! Every day they achieve things they couldn’t come close to 6 even just weeks ago. Everyday we compare photos from a few months ago and are in awe of how much they have transformed. No matter how many photos you see, and posts you read, you will never fully know the MAGIC that is BootCamp, until you try it for yourself. We promise it’s not as scary as it seems! We will hold your hand and guide you every step of the way!! Message us with any questions! Can’t wait to see you there!! 🙌🏻
Tonight’s session was nothing short of AMAZING. I mean from her beautiful gown, to her talented makeup skills (she did that herself!) and their love.. it was just magical. It was also 30 degrees this evening, but froze our behinds off chasing golden hour and it was WORTH it. 🙌✨☾
