Alexandra Climent started her woodworking company, Sustainably Sliced, to bring responsively sourced, rare and exotic wood pieces to the world through her designs. Her journey started when she was working for a marine construction company and saw the need for high-quality sawn lumber that wasn’t readily available and she decided to directly source this lumber and have her employer be her first client. Today, Alexandra sources wood sustainably directly from the source and has become close friends with locals in the areas she’s visited. Her work showcases the beauty in the wood she exports, including many species that had never before been exported, as art, furniture, bowls, and boxes.
