We recently took a trip out to Stock Island to visit renowned wood artist Kasidy Fritts of Washed Up Key West.
How did you get started and what inspired you to blend local tropical hardwoods to create such stunning pieces?
You could say I was raised in a woodshop. When I was a kid in Pennsylvania my mom and dad converted an old barn out back into their own woodshop and they made a lot of small farmhouse-style trinkets and decorations. Fast forward to 2013 shortly after my first daughter was born I made my wife a table as a thank you and realized I really liked doing it.
One of our most famous icons, as the name would suggest, is the key lime. This small, tart fruit packs a puckery punch, yet has still managed to win over our collective hearts and minds. Many would say this is largely thanks to the pure magic that results when mixing this sour little lime with any amount of sugar...Enter, Key Lime Pie.
