About Jill Heir
Where my first career in Engineering was born of necessity and has stood me in good stead, my second was born from the desire to create. Each piece begins with a hand-crafted base of American or exotic woods, Ambrosia Maple, Red Oak, Patagonian Rosewood, Canary, Zebra; their names evoking memories of the places that have inspired my creativity.
I use reed and cane to build original pieces, creating only one unique piece. The final finishing preserves the integrity of the piece and transforms it into an heirloom.
