The skillful union of
Matter & Meaning .

Balia was born out of my passion for craft, beauty and imagination. The process of creation is a magical one for me, and it’s my hope that these pieces communicate this same quality to those who experience them. 

These are items created with reverence for our shared ancestral history, a love of nature, & admiration of the human spirit. These are objects that celebrate the mystery of existence. These objects are modern artifacts.
