Doug Muir of Mystic Wild Craft: Local Artist at Work

Out of sight, in the backyard of a Highlands home is an open air wood workshop.  It is here where Doug Muir of Mystic Wild Craft takes reclaimed wood and uncovers wooden faces and sculptures. 

He graciously let Highlands Garden Club members tour his work space and answered our eager questions about his art and process. 
Some completed pieces were able for sale, and knowing that each one was varnished and weather-proof (perfect for outdoor display) Club members happily adopted some for their gardens.  (Below: See some of the friends we made!)

A more detailed account of his work and our visit will feature in a future Highlands / Bellevue Highlights. Keep your eyes open! 

Side note: Doug is also a carpenter by day.  Give him a call if you need a bespoke wood piece for your garden or home.
