Board and Bread

There's a lot to like about Emily Brock. She is a third generation woodworker living in Nashville, Tennessee who finds pure joy in her craft. With a wealth of knowledge at her fingertips and an artistic streak in her blood, she creates stunning everyday objects, including this walnut pendant.

In Emily's online shop, Board and Bread, you'll find these lights along with a mix of kitchen tools, including bowls, utensils, cutting boards and pie servers. 

Emily sources local Tennessee hardwoods like black walnut, curly maple and African rosewood. Her work is functional yet beautifully styled with a pretty, feminine touch. These pieces are heirlooms, meant to be used again and again as all of her kitchen tools are crafted to withstand the pressures of high heat and repeated use. 

Emily believes strongly that all the items in our homes can be meaningful. These tools live at the heart of the kitchen where family and friends gather and share... 

Emily, "I meshed my passion for cooking and sharing food with my desire as an artist to create functional, hand crafted items that enable myself and others to escape to the old world. A place where we all slow down and share food and life at a pace that allows for appreciation of the unique curl of grain on a maple spoon, or how the vibrant colors of winter citrus play against the dark tones of a serving board from Oregon Black Walnut." Like I said, there's a lot to like about Emily Brock...
