Spotlight on House Mountain Natural
Today I bring you a new type of post – spotlights on different artists or small businesses. It is always a treat for me to see the finished creations of artists that have purchased their supplies from Rockin’ Resin. It is especially fun when it is not the typical product which brings me to Rose with House Mountain Natural from Eastern Tennessee. Before starting her business, she was a prototype creator for major craft manufacturers. Now she is the owner, designer, and creator of House Mountain Natural. She uses the beauty of Tennessee’s nature and her three grandchildren as inspiration for her art. Her mission is to create environmentally conscious quality products for a healthier world and play environment for children. She primarily focuses on wooden pretend play products for kids. She says “I embrace both the Montessori theory of learning through play and the natural beauty of Waldorf. My toys are designed with the guidance of my sister a certified preschool teacher with a Master’s in Early Childhood Education. Each piece I make is carefully sanded and left in its natural state, or painted with Eco-friendly soy paint. Then sealed with my own blend of organic oils and local organic beeswax.” Her products have been featured in People Magazine, Inhabitots, and the Disney Baby Blog.
The toys are incredibly well made and so beautiful to look at. Rose has incorporated the Mod Podge Collage Clay in white and strawberry and fake sprinkles purchased from Rockin’ Resin into her new designs and created some incredibly realistic pretend play toys for children. I can totally picture a preschooler playing in their mini kitchens serving up their parents the play cupcakes or ice cream cones. I hope you will check out her shop, House Mountain Natural, on Etsy. If you don’t see a set you like, she also takes custom orders. Christmas is coming, they would definitely make some nice presents from Santa.
You can find House Mountain Natural on Etsy or on Facebook.
