ASH + IRON'S BIRTH STORY

It has been many a trip around the sun since Kalah accidentally stumbled into the daydream of pursuing a life of creativity in the woodworking arena. There is something about the organic beauty of wood, it's ability to withstand time and to remain altogether wild and  and  refined in both its raw and finished form that is grounding and inspiring for her.  It wasn't until she entered an existential crisis of sorts that she grappled more seriously with trying her hand at turning this daydream into a reality. Alas, like most beautiful things to come before it, Ash + Iron was born from calamity and a desire for a life of  greater depth and meaning.

"As I lie on the couch, my heart feels wide open, and there is nothing to do or change about anything. All there is to do is experience it. No need to try to make meaning-making myths fit together or to exclude or fear any of it. All of it belongs. Here, I can love this moment and all the moments connected to it because none of this comes without all of this. The love. The suffering. The play. The adventure."

-Vishnu Dass
