about the company
Designed by nature – Crafted by hand
Through our work, we aim to capture and celebrate the beauty of the natural world. We create highly accurate, one-of-a-kind topographic maps out of thin sheets of cherry and maple wood. Inspired by an effort to embrace a sense of place, each piece is designed using 2D and 3D data. Each layer is cut then stacked and adhered by hand, revealing the true-to-life elevation of the landscape.
Started in early 2018 by Erin Cridlebaugh, Squirrel Hill Design and Craft quickly became a mainstay at craft fairs throughout upstate New York. Each weekend between May and December our pop-up shop tent could be found at shows like the Rochester Lilac Festival, Memorial Art Gallery’s Clothesline Festival, and the Roycroft Arts & Crafts Festival. Our work can now be found in several shops and galleries throughout the region. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we transitioned away from the festival circuit to an online shopping experience.
