Raeanne + Christopher


Pittsburgh, PA

The simple life isn't always easy and the easy life isn't necessarily simple. Together we strive to live a life of purpose - creating, exploring, experiencing and sharing. We look to find the beauty in everyday. In 2015 we decided it was time to deepen our passions, strengthen our crafts and to open our hearts and home to the public. In sharing our story with you we hope you find inspiration, discover new passions or reignite old ones, cultivate a community, make new friends, slow down and be present. Live the good life.

Who We Are

Christopher || cook, carpenter, tree climber, furniture maker 

Raeanne || dreamer, maker, gardener, hostess

Larken || little one, lounger, lover of milk and snuggles

Christopher was born wearing a tool belt. He is food master and a pantry pirate crafting new recipes on a daily basis. He has this knack for making something out of what appears to be nothing. He's a tree climbing, forest loving wood worker. He once drove to California from Pennsylvania in search of "home", but I think it was mostly just to buy these superbly handcrafted japanese woodworking tools. You can usually find him dangling high up in a tree or working on his wood shop where he will one day create furniture and small creatively crafted wood pieces. 

Raeanne is happiest elbow-deep in garden dirt and surrounded by the smells of summer. She loves to make things. From dream catchers to jewelry, to anything fermented, pickled or preserved, beer, bitters, tinctures and tonics, soaps, lotions, teas and let's not forget the party decorations. The latter translates well to her love planning parties and entertaining. It's a pretty ridiculous love affair actually. If you say party to Raeanne she will say, "YES PLEASE!"

Larken is the latest addition to the Fernwood + Fryer family. She's tiny and fierce.
