Ken Hohnecker

July 25, 2016

Hi,
My name is Ken Hohnecker. I just finished a weekend selling my work at your West Elm location on Broadway in NYC. Reba Bozart, the GM, loved my work and invited me back. David Borden was the one who got me started. I also worked and spoke with Tonisha, Christine., Alex and Cameron among others. They all were great and made me feel right at home.
The name of my company is Segmented Lamps & Vases. I handcraft lamps and vases from exotic and domestic hardwoods. They are made up of anywhere 130 to 260 pieces (segments) of wood. I also accent my work with a specially made plywood called Spectraply. It adds interest and gives a beautiful touch. The vases can hold both fresh and dry flowers or just be used for decorative purposes. These pieces are different and people absolutely love them.
I sold seven vases and three lamps the two days I was there. I believe, as well as some of the West Elm employees have told me, that my product is a great fit for your stores. I hope to maybe do more business with you guys in the near future.
Have a Great Day,
Ken
