ORIGINAL BHAM

Created on a whim, the Original B'ham logo made its first appearance as a bumper sticker in 2013. It was an instant hit as a Bold, Fun, and instantly Recognizable reference to the city's popular nickname. The Original B'ham logo is more than a play on a nickname and much more than a funny bumper sticker. We believe pride in our community is vital to the success of the revitalization of Birmingham.  Our desire is to celebrate our city and contribute in our own unique way to the ongoing effort to make Birmingham better than ever!

Smoky Mountain Bow Knife

Smoky Mountain Bow Knife

SMOKY MOUNTAIN BOW KNIFE

Approximately 100 years ago, the people living in the Appalachian Mountains crafted various "bows" to make a variety of knives and saws. Harold Collins' craft is a time honored legacy of the people who live in the Appalachian Mountains. Living in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains himself naturally increases his interest in the colorful heritage of the region.

Harold handcrafts a very unique "bow knife" using a technique that is steeped in tradition. His handcrafted bow knife can be used to cut hot bread, crusty bread, and bagels with ease. It can also be used for vegetables, fruits, cheese, prepared and boneless meats. The blade is made of stainless steel. Because of the design of the blade, it never needs sharpening!

A variety of domestic hardwoods are used to make the bow handle for the knife, including: black walnut, cherry, oak, and mahogany. Because of the bow design, no pressure has to be applied like you would need with a conventional knife. You use the bow knife as you would use a saw, with a back-and-forth sawing motion.

Harold designs and cuts the bow knife handle using a variety of saws, sanders, and a drill press. He also uses a hand sander to sand each one to a smooth, satin finish, then applies a non-toxic coating to seal and enhance the wood. He hand buffs each to bring out the natural grain and beauty of the solid woods. The knife is a very functional kitchen utensil that will last for years. It compliments all kitchen-types, making for a great gift and conversation piece!

Harold also hand-makes crumb trays for cutting bread; the tray can be used as a serving tray by removing the slatted insert. The removed insert may be used as a trivet for hot foods.

TWISTED TIARA

Twisted Tiara. Hand-dyed art that's hip…not hippie. Welcome to the colorful world of Twisted Tiara! You'll steal the spotlight in the unbelievable colors and patterns of our hand-dyed originals.Each piece has it's own personality and a story to tell! Whether you wear a tiara with jeans or you're a bit more twisted, you'll love the relaxed style of Twisted Tiara! Our hand-dyeing combines vibrant pigments and artistic composition in an explosion of color and texture on canvases of fine cotton, modal and rayon garments. The result evokes an emotional connection unlike traditional tie dyeing. Soft, feminine lines and flowing colors are our signature look. Technique: We primarily dye using a technique called Low Immersion. It’s more eco-friendly than traditional tie dye. With Low Immersion, dye is applied, blended, dappled, salted and finessed until a pleasing result is achieved. Small amounts of water are added to give the dye an ebb and flow. The final step is the setting process.
