Tryyn, pronounced "treen," is the brainchild of a modest but successful fine-wood Craftsman, William V. Chappelow. Chappelow founded Tryyn 35 years ago, and moved the company to it's present location in Guatay about 15 years ago. Chappelow specializes in a once popular field - that of making simple crafted wood spoons and other useful kitchen items. His genius in wood is demonstrated from the Smithsonian Institute to the Mingei Museum and around the world. Tryyn, (an old medieval word, meaning "coming from the tree"), is an interesting showcase of the artist's work, next to the wood shop, where he crafts and sells a variety of wooden utensils and kitchen wares, as well as his most recent endeavors in avant-guard wooden table art and jewelry. "After working on mostly wooden spoons for the past 30 years, I've had to expand my interests in order not to get bored," Chappelow said. "I'm hoping that my jewelry and table art centerpieces will be just as popular as my kitchen utensils." If wood could talk, Chappelow would be the first person to hear it speak. He seems to personally encounter each piece of wood and go in any direction that it dictates. Chappelow has worked with as many as 250 varieties of wood including local woods such as manzanita, olive, oak and even some Torrey Pine. Some of the more exotic woods he uses are purpleheart from Brazil, cocobolo from Costa Rica, Teak, chocolate lacewood, as well as Spalted Coral Tree. Each creation is completely individualized. Chappelow said he also does special requests from customers using their own wood. Recently, a long time customer came into the store to add yet another individually signed and dated wooden marker to her beautiful "Welch Wedding Spoon. This novelty item has a double spoon hanger (representing husband and wife spoons), from which are strung smooth, rounded wooden markers. Each year of the couple's marriage, another wooden marker is added, while a special darker wooden marker represents each five-year mark. The happy customer remarked, "Love spoons are great anniversary reminders...that sometimes you might have to count the pieces to remember how many years of marriage it's really been." Interestingly, throughout the gallery are scattered old coins, beads, shells, books, Americana antiques, and even a 100-gallon aquarium with a fish, which came all the way from Thailand. (Chappelow loves nature and once pursued a career in Ecology). Chappelow uses the coins, beads and shells in some of his jewelry. He has some beads and shells which are around 5,000 years old, from circa 3,000 BC. A 1,400-year-old Sumarian bead is included in one of his necklaces.
