Don and Suzanne Zacharias
Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada

Cedar Mountain Studios, Don and Suzanne Zacharias Long before the days of the internet and web-based stores, Don Zacharias was touting his crafty wares to the best gift shops in Vancouver. One day while his now wife Suzanne was working in a hip little shop, Don “the bird man” came in to show off his hand-crafted wooden bird toy, a project inspired by his work in theatre design. Don’s wooden birds were a hit among friends and family alike, and from then on he and Suzanne have worked together to create original decorative works to inspire and entertain. After one too many commutes to Vancouver, Don and Suzanne gave up city life and made the big move to Salt Spring Island. Home to a diverse community of artists, musicians, writers, farmers, old timers and new travellers, Salt Spring attracts thousands of tourists from around the globe every year to visit its diverse Saturday Market and beautiful landscapes. Don and Suzanne love being a part of this creative and dynamic community.

All Cedar Mountain Studios Art Blocks are designed and manufactured in Don and Suzanne’s own backyard studio by a talented team of nine people, two dogs and one cat. They continue to craft products that they hope will make you stop, read, ponder, and laugh.
