Roots so vibrant
Hear them speak!
Unearth the treasures
rare and rustic
Deep in the Costa Rican rainforest, tree roots, otherwise left for naught, are carefully harvested and used in the most creative ways by artisans who speak the language of roots.
Root52 Gallery, located in New York’s Catskill Mountains right off Route 52, displays the most amazing collection of bowls, vases, tables, chairs, and even jewelery, all carved from hardwood roots. The wood species mentioned above are only a partial list of types that are represented at Root52.
With the recognition of each species’ character and the talent to explore the roots’ messages, artisans in Costa Rica handcraft unique and exotic creations for Root52 that are in synch with the environment and ecologically responsible.
