Alexander "Alec" Jordan has always had a passion for woodworking.

His lifelong home - a 1752 colonial house in Bethel, Connecticut - has provided the backdrop for years of training in restoring classic New England architecture and furniture, as well as supplying a wonderful canvas for creating original new pieces in his very contemporary style.

Alec attended Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York where he pursued his passion for sculpture, woodworking and science.

Alec is passionate about using local woods in his work,
milling them himself. His 'treecycling' mentality has
led to a number of unique finds - sassafras, mulberry, and American elm, among others - woods which are not available commercially. He haunts local land clearing companies in search of unique woods, creating one-of-a-kind hand-crafted pieces from beautiful woods that might otherwise be wasted on firewood or - worse - wood chips.

Alec is also an avid recreational tree climber. "Being up in a tree at 200 or 300 feet is like nothing you've ever felt before. It's a magical world that few people ever even think about, let alone actually enter. It gives you a whole new appreciation for these strong, silent living entities with which our country was built."
