Meet Mary Fente

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mary Fente.

Mary, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As a family, we have always sat together for dinner, always talked about owning a large “14 -16” foot live edge dining table. Through our travels to Costa Rica, we fell in love with their “wood” and the art done with their local wood. Costa Rica is a very eco-friendly country that treasures and takes care of its environment, which we embrace. The idea came up to start a business since we were all in love with the pieces and wanted to share our excitement and found treasure back home. We were lucky enough to meet Muriel of through her beautiful homes and Walter, the artist that works with her. They were receptive to bringing the pieces of art to the United States, and so our experience commenced.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The journey has been smooth, the ocean transportation of the items a bit less.

Please tell us about SobreMesa Wood Creations.

We harvest only from permitted forests. Some of our pieces are finished with “color(s)” and resin, which adds to the beauty of the wood.
