We had the pleasure of meeting Reggie, who showed us his workshop (including giving a demonstration) and exhibition pieces. We bought one of his fascinating mahogany root sculptures as a unique souvenir of our time in Barbados.

Spectacular- craft doesn’t do this justice- the man is a genius and an artist and an absolute wizard with wood! He took the time to show my wife and I around his workshop. Incredible. Very excited to be taking one of his pieces home with us

The shop in the terminal building in Barbados has a great display of the work that they do with the mahogany. The artist was at hand to explain the process of how these beautiful pieces are created. A unique keepsake to remind you of your wonderful time in Barbados.

I went on a trip with three friends to Barbados. Medford, the founder and owner of the company was there! He gave us a tour of his facility and explained to us his personal history coming into his current work. He showed us his unique process, the only person to use this process in the world. Medford was very nice and we spent a lot of time speaking with him about Barbados and the U.S. If you are traveling to Barbados, this is one stop you MUST make!

On the spur of the moment we dropped by Medford Craft today and boy did we have a treat! Mr Medford was actually on site working on his craft and was able to give us the history of his business and the ingenuity that he and his staff have come up with to craft such unique and gorgeous mahogany art. Medford's spirit was so kind and you can tell he is passionate about his work. The wood is locally and ethically sourced as the Barbadian mahogany tree is a protected plant and can't be harvested. His mahogany sculptures were STUNNING and VERY reasonably priced given the scarcity and uniqueness of the mahogany. We bought some of the smaller pieces but would love to be back to take home some of the larger art to Washington DC. If you want a truly authentic, locally sourced and crafted souvenir, this is a must stop on your Barbados trip!!
