Hand and Machine Made Crafts

I use modern manufacturing processes and a traditional craft sensibility when producing the pieces you see here. Everything is designed and made in my workshop, in Easton, Pennsylvania.

These light catching kitties are made from cellulose acetate, the same material used to make  eye glasses frames.

Laser Cut Ornaments

These laser cut ornaments are inspired by Pennsylvania Folk Art traditions. Wholesale prices are between $3-$5 per ornament.

These ornaments were very popular at the Easton Winter Village. They touched something in people, and I'm so very proud of that.

The Knecht Footstool

The little stool started as a gift for friends and family who needed a few extra inches when they were tying their shoes.

The Knecht Footstool is a little helper, measuring just 3.5" tall x 7" x 5".

These footstools are made from responsibly harvested Pennsylvania hardwoods.


"May your feet never be too far from your hands."

Thank you for visiting,

Matt Laska
