Dodeca Designs is the creative outlet of native New Orleanian Philip Rau. His passion for woodwork developed over the course of the last four years, as he worked as a carpenter in the Historic District of New Orleans. After purchasing a lathe, the oldest power machine in history, Philip discovered his love for fine, detailed work and initiated his jewelry line based on lathework. His jewelry and crafts continued to evolve with a focus on a detail and hands-on processes. Each piece is entirely hand-sanded and sealed with all-natural oils, as he refrains from using harsh stains, paints, or finishes.
