Creations By Will

                  Sustainably Breathing New Life into the History of Wood

The seed of creativity behind Creations by Will began in the early years of the last decade of the 20th Century when William Waters, the ‘Will’ behind Creations by Will, was just a boy. Growing up in the Palm Springs area of Southern California, Will literally had the 165,300 square mile Joshua Tree National Park, as his back yard. He spent his days exploring the desert hills and canyons, sharing the beauty of the geology with the coyote, scorpions, rattlesnakes, tarantulas, and other creatures great and small.
Ironically, the Southern California desert is not known for its forests. Nevertheless, a strong love of nature was born. As a teenager, he also lived in Northern California where he studied natural resource management and worked as a biological advisor and wilderness ranger for state and local agencies. His focus was watershed restoration and trail planning. He was tasked with caring for the trees and forest in or near the regions waterways and planning trail projects deep in the mountains. It was here that his appreciation of the forest with its many Varieties of trees truly began to flourish. 
”I experienced the forest – the different plants and trees – on a level much more intimate than most people ever know,” Will says. “I learned to read and understand the history of the tree and the area in which it grew because its entire story is written in the bark of a tree and in the fiber of its wood.”
Today, that knowledge guides the artistic expression evident in the unique creations shared by
Creations by Will. Whether working with reclaimed wood from a construction site an exotic
wood discovered during the remodel of a classic American home or wood carefully excised
from a diseased tree, Creations by Will sustainably breathes new life into the natural history of wood from around the world.
