We are very concerned about privacy - we have recently adopted strong security measures, and do not offer your information to anyone other than the Fay Wood Studio. If you are concerned about this, please let us know and we will delete your address from our e-mail.
Art using Found Objects has attracted me since I was living in the San Francisco Bay area, and saw the large sculptures made by local artists from objects lying on the edges of the Bay. They were fantastic, noisy, beautiful works with great energy, a sense of humor and form.
Making a few of my own pieces in the 70's and later when I had a permanent studio in a wonderful church in Saugerties, NY, and beginning to combine objects with the cherry wood carvings I had been making, I began to develop a technique that worked well for me which I've continued to this day.
I favor wood objects, but have worked with a metal series, and have found success in layering found rag paper over metal and wire armatures, then adding interesting objects to the mix and finishing with paint and beeswax.
I'm a traditionalistin that I like to make works that have a permanence and are unique.....I follow a quote by Virginia Woolf........."Arrange whatever pieces come your way"

Shipping policies and procedures - We will do our best to have your chosen work shipped as soon as possible - Either UPS or USPS Priority International Mail Service or Fed Ex. We can discuss this at the time of purchase.
Each piece must have a final cleaning and secure wrapping. Possibly a crate must be built. We will be happy to send images of the piece(s) you have chosen as soon as you have decided on your purchase and we receive payment; using PayPal is the easiest, (shipping, handling and sales taxes are not included in the price unless otherwise stated)
Please be sure we have your mailing address. We will keep in touch with you to assure you that the work is being made ready for you.
Due to the large numbers of scammers who prey on artists and others, we MUST have payment of the exact cost of the work and shipping. Separate checks may be used if necessary to determine shipping costs, however , ANY OVERPAYMENT will NOT be refunded. It will be donated to our local artist groups or to our local animal shelter, whichever is in the most need at the time, with our grateful thanks for your generous gift.
If unsatisfied with the work you have chosen, return it to us within 10 days upon receiving it, and we will refund the payment, less 10% for handling & restocking. You will be responsible for return shipping costs. Please make sure you save the packing materials, and use these to repack the work in the safe manner we used to send it to you. Also please insure the package. We cannot take the responsibility for damages to the work through mishandling during the return shipping. We will do our very best to avoid the problem of your returning the work you have chosen.
We do care about the work created at the FAY WOOD STUDIO. Sculpture, and mixed media found object works are created by hand using found materials using the flaws already present in the materials as part of the design. We pack in a secure manner - if the packaging shows no damage, then the work inside is undamaged. We take no responsibility for any damage that happens to the piece after it was removed from the packaging. Please be careful in handling the work - if damaged, we will do the best to repair it- there will be a fair charge for repair and you are responsible for any shipping costs.
That said, we want you to be truly pleased with the work you have chosen to live with, and we thank you for supporting the arts, and hope you will be so pleased with Fay Wood's work that you and your friends will become collectors!
