Welcome to Mars Design Studio maker page! My name is Laura Gavin,
Prior to launching Mars Design Studio, I became a partner with Jon Jaskulski, my companion of 17 years to become a landscaping/hardscaping designer and builder for Jon’s Landscaping Design & Build, LLC. Jon and I design custom outdoor living spaces featuring new wood structures such as decks, pavilions, pergolas, privacy screenings, custom designed fences and many more.
I decided to evolve my woodworking talents into making custom handcrafted cutting boards and charcuterie boards as thank-you and holiday gifts for our customers. Some customers were so pleased with the gifts that they asked to buy more boards. That inspired me to launch “Mars Design Studio, LLC,” in the late 2019, which has expanded to include custom orders as well as modern style furniture and outdoor furniture.
I craft my products from the finest Appalachian and exotic hardwoods. Each item is hand- rubbed with pure, natural food grade mineral oil, eco-friendly linseed oil and beeswax conditioner. Also, I use recycled wood scraps from the wood endings to make wall art, ornaments, earrings, bowls and trays. I express my artistic style through my products using bold, vibrant colors in unique patterns. The wood colors are all natural, not stained or dyed.
In August 2022, I was honored as one of the 40 Wood Artists under age 40 in America for my artistic creations.
