Welcome to Sallee Creek  Workshop, home of artist John Cuoghi!

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist ~ Louis Nizer

John 1

John developed an interest in woodworking and blacksmithing as a child, purchasing his first anvil and crafting its hewn log base at the age of twelve.  As he grew to manhood, he continued to work with wood and metals as time and the demands of career and family permitted.  In the early years he cold worked tin and built small furnishings with his Father while participating in Revolutionary War reenactments.  Later he practiced the arts of chainmaille & armor as a member of the SCA and fabricated custom bodywork for automobile restorations with his son.  Today John has combined his mechanical training, artistic skills, and love of historical craftsmanship into Sallee Creek Workshop – to create beautiful items for home and garden.

A variety of items are available from Sallee Creek Workshop, from the utilitarian pieces to custom orders.    Visit our Online Store to see what is available.
