Randy Gaul & Julian Ruzzier-Gaul
Randy created Halocline Studio in September 2017. As a veteran artist and art director in the film industry, furniture maker, and creative mastermind, he has brought his 35 years of experience to this venture. Julian has supported the studio from the start with concept and website design, community engagement, woodworking and furniture making.
Using salvaged materials Halocline Studio has created a variety of artworks, furniture, and lighting that demonstrate the value of what we so easily discard; in a radical re-appraisal of our attitude to consumption and waste the art itself becomes its own eloquent proponent. Together with this community spirit, Randy and Julian are strong believers in conservation, community building, and global environmental awareness. Much of our recent work explores the tension between consumption, corporations, conservation, and more sustainable living. We believe that there are progressive solutions happening right here in our community that can utilize salvaged materials and creative thinking.
Why "Halocline"? Halocline refers to an oceanic process during which saltwater and freshwater intermix. It is a beautifully organic interaction and deeply inspirational.
