Welcome to Slatcraft!
These hand-inlaid wood lath wildlife pictures exude a warm, tactile feel to compliment any casual lifestyle or setting. Realistic images of nature's bounty, they capture all sorts of innocent creatures experiencing their natural worlds.
To some, it is rustic art. To others it's nautical or even primitive. For the past twenty five years, we have called it "Casual art with a touch of understated elegance."
Each work is designed by one of Florida's best-known art woodcrafters, then cut, stained, fitted, piece by piece. Every picture is uniquely hand crafted in native aspen and individually stained in any of a number of soft, natural hues, through the use of exterior oil stains. The finished product is the perfect eclectic touch, either indoors or outside by the deck.
Since the picture you order is entirely handmade, you may see some variation in hue, contrast, wood fit and layout from those shown on this site. Most of our collectors consider this uniqueness desirable, but should you have specific preferences, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
You may select any of three basic colorways for frames: Gray (either light or dark),Taupe, and Brown, each of which is shown in various photographs on this site, (see the differences on the two Swimming Pelicans in Seashore Birds). In the event you wish to choose the specific frame color for your order, simply go to the "options" pulldown before placing your item into your shopping cart. Should you not select, we will assume you prefer the piece as shown.
Custom commissions are available and welcomed, upon request. Dealer and Gallery inquiries are also encouraged. Contact Slatcraft.
We maintain some limited stock in several of the more popular designs and make every attempt to ship immediately, but please allow four to six weeks for most. UPS and FEDEX Ground service are standard.
We gladly accept PayPal and all major credit cards through PayPal, even if you may not be a PayPal subscriber. Just follow the directions at the PayPal checkout.
Please enjoy your tour of the site and come back often to see the new additions.
