New video on natural builder SunRay Kelley

Lew discovered this. It stalls periodically, maybe something wrong in the encoding. We found it best to turn off sound and let it load. Once it’s in the cache, you can play it straight through. (Seems somehow fitting that that the electronic world gets garbled around SunRay, who is a magician of the natural world.

Inspired By… SunRay Kelley from Shwood Eyewear on Vimeo.

“Growing up in the wild hills of the Pacific Northwest, it seems like SunRay was always building something. His favorite source of inspiration and materials is the woods around him, “God’s Hardware Store” as he calls it. When working on a project it is not uncommon to see him pick up a saw and head off into the woods looking for the right piece of wood to present itself. If he says anything, he’ll mumble ‘I’m going shopping.’

  1. Awesome, thanks Lloyd! I missed the opportunity to tour Sunray's spread a while back…I couldn't find the street because someone had taken down the first sign…and the person who gave me directions said it was on the Right when it was actually a Left!

    I decided not to take it personally…;-)
