Avilion Sustainable Homes is a UK/French company that produces timber frame homes that are very well insulated, built of sustainable materials, combining Scandinavian standards of materials, products and insulation technology with distinctive styling and craftsmanship. Timber frame has been the principal method of construction in North America, Scandinavia and even Scotland for many years and rapidly increasing energy costs make timber frame construction the method of choice, not just for the future of our world but the running costs of homes. Avilion timber frame homes are frequently bespoke, designed and built to meet each customer's specific requirements, although their standard designs may meet clients' requirements, or with slight modifications. This website is professional, well illustrated and contains useful information about buying land in France, about the methods of construction used and pictures of progress on recent projects (bottom right) .



MikiKappa designs and produces wooden furniture, decorative objects and architectural elements of outstanding craftmanship and innovative contemporary design. Every product is handmade out of high quality solid wood avoiding engineered woodproducts, which often contain toxic resins and do not age well. The wood they use originates from sustainably managed forests or, even better, from salvaged and recycled wooden elements like old beams, barrel wood and even driftwood found on the beach. These seasoned materials show less shrinkage and expansion during changes of temperature and humidity. Salvaged materials also are esthetically pleasing. For example: wood from old wine barrels - mostly oak and chesnut - has a beautiful grain and natural dye thanks to being soaked in red wine for decades. Manufacturing custom architectural components is one of their specialties including beautiful solid wood / parquet floors. One of their most popular products is flooring entirely made out of recycled barrel wood.
MikiKappa is the creation of Michael Krumbiegel (1960), and he is married to Francesca Genna, an Italian printmaker and author of a book on sustainable etching

Nita Winter and Bob Badger - Nita Winter's photographic passion began during her senior year at Clark University where she earned a degree in biology. In 1976 Nita moved to San Francisco and began to document her work fighting fires and leading tours on Alcatraz Island while working for the National Parks Service. In her words: "I thoroughly enjoy recording candid moments in people's lives, especially those of children. For 40 years.


Bob Badger, an environmental activist, instructor, lecturer and photographer, has recorded the beauty of the earth and its accelerating destruction. His mastery of light and color, and his ability to emotionally portray the essence of a place in time, has won him international awards for his Antarctica series, and "Best in Journalism" for his evocative environmental photography, work that is simultaneously beautiful and disturbing.

Bev Peden is a Canadian artist exploring printmaking and oil painting at her home on Pender Island, British Columbia. Having lived in Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia for 20 years, her African experiences have strongly influenced her Eastern African paintings and printmaking. She has also enjoyed writing about her experiences and has taken many photographs of people and life in East Africa. "My art reflects the struggle, understanding and, sometimes, humour that accompany the many adjustments which work to combine my African and Canadian experiences. Through balance and insight, my work finds its expression reaching for both the metaphorical and real images which evoke a more primal expression of faith and unity. Many times the work is an exploration of both the outer reality surrounding me, and the inner landscape of my own responses...." bev peden

"..Il Faut Danser la Vie (Life Should be Danced) My new series of one-off prints has been inspired by the experiences I have had over the last 6 months watching and participating in dance. I started to learn to dance last February and lost my heart almost immediately to the feeling of being on the dance floor - the combination of music, lights and the people I met started to seep into my work and within a matter of weeks I was trying to pin down the way it made me feel and make images to represent that."

Having spent a lot of time outside in all weathers, earning a living or hill walking, I have always been fascinated with the colours of the native woodland, mountain and moorland. I am struck by harmonies of colour such as the reddish upper branches of scots pines contrasting with their pine green foliage or the maroon heather and yellow autumnal birch leaves. To gain inspiration and ideas for paintings I will sometimes make 2 to 4 day trips to remote places staying in bothys or rough camping. As well as sketch books I take small rolled canvases for colour studies and oil sketches....".

M.P. Brown artworks - "Contemporary art for the conscience contemporary" - M.P. Brown was raised during the gradual decline of the American steel industry. The slow transformation from a blue to white collar society left a lasting impression on him. Much like the societal struggles inherent during change; M.P. Brown's artwork invokes a feeling of contradiction or struggle. He uses an experimental technique of smearing, blending, and manipulating paint with various straight edged materials. This subtle struggle is an abstract depiction of his general mood at the time of creation....This site shows the work of a politically liberal and active supporter of Obama.

Eco-LogicalART is a dynamic new non-profit sister company to Peter Schulberg's personal recovered element studio, the DejaDesign Gallery. Both entities share his conviction that beautiful objects surround us and only need to be re-envisioned. With Eco-LogicalART Schulberg takes his theory of creative recovery to ground liberating new heights. The gallery's fine art line features original art painted on recycled billboard vinyl. Tossed into landfills by the ton weekly, this heavy, ink impregnated material is an environmental nightmare. But ECO-LA takes the indestructible nature of the advertising vinyl and turns it into an asset. Dynamic and aesthetically pleasing as they are, the works offer something more-- the feel good satisfaction of knowing that a landfill, somewhere, is a little less full because of the art hanging on your wall. An old Shaker saying is one of Schulberg's touchstones: "We do not inherit the earth from our parents; we are borrowing it from our children."
