Since 1990 when Bill and Marcia founded Primitive Twig, their whimsical metal designs have found their way to the walls of collectors all across North America. Their work has been featured on TV, in magazines and international publications.
In 2007, their work and home were featured in Home Magazine. Their work can be found in Anthropologie and Bergdorf Goodman’s stores as well as Sundance and Uncommon Goods catalogs.
The pieces are made from salvaged materials; from old tins, antique doll parts, and assorted vintage objet d'art. “When we tell people about how a piece includes a doll head made in Germany in 1895, they catch our enthusiasm,” says Finks.“When they buy our work, they’re buying a piece of history, as well as a signed work of art.” Their clients include art galleries, small gift shops, home furnishing stores, lighting shops and Bergdorf Goodman.
Candlesticks and doll totems are seriously one-of-a-kind.
Collectors of Bill and Marcia Finks will already have an idea of what to expect. It is really difficult to photograph the pieces. But I tried. The doll piece is a total 52" tall to the top of the pointy hat. Hat is 18" tall. Book bank is 6" tall and 4.5" wide. Bottom tier is 5.5" tall, middle is 4" tall and top is 4' tall. The "hoop" skirt is 7" diameter. Base is 7" diameter.
