Live Edge Forest

Candice Sheriff

The Jill of all trades.

 A creative soul with a bachelor of design- Candice keeps the balance and an eye on all the finer details. Do not underestimate her prowess in the wood shop. 

Dan Alonso

The original seed.

Dan planted trees across Canada for 9 seasons and this experience is what planted the seed for Live Edge Forest. He is a driving force filled with passion and innovation.

Together we design, create and share.

Candice and Dan love working with clients to create functional art pieces that tell a story all their own. Their new partnership with Deep Water Wood, whom recover ancient timbers from the depths the Muskoka lakes, enables the duo to preserve and celebrate local history through their craft. “Inspired by the landscape, we design, create and share our vision utilizing natural elements and some of the finest water recovered old-growth hardwood in the world- without sacrificing the standing forests of today.”
