Alex Pettigrew

Alex creates functional accessories and artistic pieces for office and home.  Turning and flatwork techniques are employed. Pieces use carefully selected combinations of woods from the wonderful palette of color and texture available from the Appalachian hardwood forests. The wood is sourced from local suppliers and from the artisan's own property. Items are finished using natural oils and waxes. The goal is to let the wood feel like wood while offering protection consistent with use.

Decorative techniques such as Lichtenberg burning, gilding, and combinations with colored resins are also employed.

In addition to the C’Ville Arts Gallery, Alex’s work is available in many fine shops in the central Virginia area as well on his website and Amazon.

C’ville Arts offers a tremendous range of crafts and art, including decorative & functional objects for your home & garden, wearable art such as jewelry and scarves, organic balms, photography, paintings, sculpture, and more. As a cooperative, we work together to operate the store, helping keep our art affordable. Visitors are able to meet and chat with the artists who are on duty each day. C’ville Arts has become a popular place to find unique gifts for all occasions and locally made mementos for visitors to our area.
