I was born in Lithuania but find my home in Montana. My furniture is my way of saying thank you to the people of Montana for the beauty and wisdom of this wonderful state. Old barns, rivers, mountains, people's faces and their expressions, and kindness; all these things I try to incorporate into my work.
Skylandis Furniture was established in 2006 in Bozeman, Montana.
I have had a passion for making furniture for many years. In the years of perfecting my skill and artisanship I came to develop my own style, combining a sculptural approach to furniture with a respect for the history and quality of the materials. Design lines and materials can be duplicated but not the honesty and thankfulness that I bring to my work everyday.
Most of the materials I use come from old barns in Montana and South Dakota. Every imperfection and crease has a story. In my work, I try to capture wind, the motion of rivers and the color of the sunrise. I may never succeed, but I will keep trying and will continue producing unique and beautiful custom furniture.
