Moose Works Colorado
Greg Marquez’ vision for carved and painted wood is full of wonder and joy. His simple, smooth designs in natural wood or bright colors invite children of all ages to bring these toys to life! On his website, MooseWorks Colorado.com, Greg writes:
AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER I HAVE BEEN MAKING THINGS.
As an adult I made toys for nieces and nephews and a bit later for my son, pull-toys, swords and shields, skateboards and even a full sized rocking horse. Soon I was receiving commissions to make toys for the children of friends and friends-of-friends and here we are.
I have no agenda or mission but it has become apparent that there is a want for wooden toys that are simpler and inspire the use of imagination. I frequently here stories of toys that have been played with and then handed down to the next generation and so-on and now rest on a shelf, worn but still there. I love the thought that a toy I have made will be a played with by many small hands for many years.”
