“With every piece I ask myself: If this was the last thing I ever made, would I be proud of it? Have I given it my very best?”

“Wood is an amazing thing, really. Pliable, organic, resilient. Adds warmth to any space. No two pieces are alike, and you need a patient, guiding hand to reveal their subtle delights.”

— Adrian Kennedy —

OUR STORY

Early Bird Creative was the natural outgrowth from a local, family-owned business. Pat and Nita Kennedy founded Olde World Door and Sunshine Glass back in 1982, entrusting it to their son, Adrian, after they retired in 2013. As Adrian continued their tradition of building finely crafted custom doors and stained glass windows, he also discovered a passion for furniture-making. Marrying the classic artistry of his parents’ legacy with his own modern sensabilities, Adrian has created something entirely new for our customers to enjoy.
