Crewel & Unusual, formerly known as The New Woodsman, is a multi-media studio featuring artist/maker Daniel Crawford.  C&U began in 2007 and has snowballed into a culmination of art, wit, and skill.


It started as a self-imposed challenge to make a multi-part silicone mold of antlers. It was a success, and I was able to make multiple castings from it. I gifted those to friends and family for the holidays, and from there, I began experimenting with pigments, color combinations, glitter, glow-in-the-dark, and other types of antlers.

I make all of my embroideries, molds, and castings at my studio in Richmond, Virginia. It gets a little messy.
