Materials, Process, and Inspiration
Each finely detailed product experiments with the combination of laser cutting technology and traditional handcrafting techniques. Our designs explore shapes and patterns found in nature, architecture, textiles, and geometry.
The use of wood brings a natural warmth to our designs, while also making them light-weight and easy to wear. Hand-painting, staining, sealing, and assembly provide the finishing touches that make our products both unique and long-lasting.
The act of making is something we strongly believe in. With the exception of the hooks and chains, everything that we sell has been designed and produced in our studio in Somerville, MA.
Who we are
Antoinette Hocbo is an illustrator and designer in Somerville, MA. She enjoys pairing the precision of the laser cutter with the surprising discoveries that happen in the sketching process. Her path to jewelry and product design results from a mix of formal training from the Rhode Island School of Design and less-than-formal training from her partner in all things, Jared Steinmark.
Jared Steinmark is an architect and designer in Somerville, MA. When he's not working on Hawkmark projects, he designs full-time at Klopfer Martin Design Group, teaches part-time at Wentworth Institute of Technology, and helps coordinate Summer/Build for Artforming.
Richard the Laser Cutter has a 60 watt laser, which mainly cuts and etches our wood products, but can take on almost any material you throw at him... except metal or glass (also, he really prefers you not throw). He lives in Somerville, MA, and enjoys the indoors and humming.
