“The Dentuso is cruel and able and strong and intelligent.”- Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea
Dentuso Designs is the one-man team of Brad Stanford and his exceptional woodworking skills creating beautiful, handmade rustic coastal artwork locally made right here in Rockport, TX.
In 2017 after Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on the Texas coast, he was the first to take that destruction of our fallen live oak trees and “Harveywood” debris and create beautiful home decor & wearable art pieces. His Harveywood necklaces were a big hit with locals and supporters of our town and he shipped pieces all over the US, as well as his serving trays carved from live oak with genuine Turquoise inlay. From there, he began his line of the ever popular charcuterie “Shark Coochie ” boards, in shapes of–you guessed it—sharks–and other various shapes and patterns. He also utilizes genuine sea glass from area beaches, exotic woods, and resin to create truly unique & functional works of art that will last for years to come. In addition to his serving trays, he also creates coastal LED lighted artwork, handheld bottle openers, and coasters, and also welcomes custom orders!
Brad’s current collection is available at Rowdy Maui in downtown Rockport and online at DentusoDesigns.com
